What Would Devo Do?



Another in my ongoing series of altered Jesus paintings. This print I discovered already framed and ready to go. Are we not Messiahs? We are Devo!!! The spuds in the background really pull the piece together as JC gazes off into the horizon deep in thought about future plans in this atomic age. I am including the before and after.

GOT AN URGE GOT A SURGE
AND IT'S OUT OF CONTROL
GOT AN URGE I WANNA PURGE
'CAUSE I'M LOSING CONTROL
UNCONTROLLABLE URGE
I WANNA TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT
UNCONTROLLABLE URGE
MAKES ME SCREAM AND SHOUT IT
IT'S GOT STYLE IT'S GOT CLASS
SO STRONG I CAN'T LET IT PASS
I GOTTA TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT
I GOTTA SCREAM AND SHOUT IT
AND I SAY YEAH

Frida Kahlo paintings

SOLD
SOLD


These were both commissioned by Mika as gifts for our friends Nilda and Chris as birthday gifts.
For Nilda's painting I selected themes found in several Frida Kahlo pieces to enhance a portrait of the artist. For Chris' painting I was asked to make a portrait of her daughters enhanced by Frida images. Both were painted on found canvases that were already framed.
