"One thing I liked about my experience as a graffiti artist was starting out with letters and tweaking them which caused a sometimes legible or illegible output. Lately I have been applying a similar experimental approach to portraiture. In this particular piece I decided to use both portraiture and lettering as a starting point where I eventually distorted and blended both subjects and ended with some interesting results. The process involves a constant edit to images I select, where in this case I chose a face and letter at random which came together as a small drawing. From that drawing I made a larger painting that also transformed since the medium, particularly spray paint, has more range. I used a spray paint nozzle throughout the painting similar to what we used to take off oven cleaner. We used to call them “soft ball caps” because the paint would flare out to that size. Along with the prints, the original painting and drawing are for sale here on 1xRUN." - Samuel Rodriquez
