ABOUT THIS ART:
"This print was made from a very large painting by same name. Often I find that paintings are more powerful without text—thus the empty speech bubble. This is not traditional western art. If you appreciate vintage art styles, Pulp novel covers, Golden Age Comics, the romanticizing of the West, POP art, or just like a tough painting of Hell Cats and outlaws my work is for you.This series has some hand embellishments on the top of the print. I have used some Krink and spray paint because these materials are cheap, fast and loud! In my distant past I had a graffiti and street art background." - Matt Straub

ABOUT Matt Straub:
With a bold comic visual vocabulary and sensibility, Straub's paintings echo the period of transition between Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. Featuring classic Western iconographic images of cowboys, cowgirls, guns, and horses, Straub's paintings and collages depict the humorous and violent narratives and sentimental mythologies of the American West – a landscape defined by melancholy sunsets, badlands, gunfights, outlaws and red-blooded heroes. His references include Hollywood Westerns and the Comics and Pulps of the 1940s-50s.
