Ready to Hang
The reason I chose the title for this piece is because the painting is supposed to represent an aged coffee table with 2 coffee cup stains on it...and one happens to look very much like a monkey. Monkey + Coffee Stain = Moffee Stain.
I created this piece early in the morning after having my morning cup of coffee.
My inspiration in creating this piece was a stain left from my morning coffee cup. As I picked up the cup, it appeared to me that the condensation had left the image of a monkey face on the table. I thought, "How awesome is that?" and wanted to recreate it for all to see.
My name is Cameron West and I'm an actor, producer, writer, musician and artist living in Los Angeles. I see the beauty in every day life and I want others to see it too. That's why I have my hands in so many different genres; to reach as many people as possible. From an early age I was fascinated by the way that colors and shapes, in different combinations, could elicit different responses from different people; one person might see a a red box as a wagon, while another might see it as a barn. The wagon brings about a feeling of whimsical youth while the barn brings about a feeling of every life on a farm...and yet, the red box is just a red box...or is it? It's these types of questions that keep me busy. What I see might be what you see, but it might be something else entirely. That's why I LOVE art. It's all subjective and there is no right or wrong. Art imitates life which imitate art. It's a wonderful circle. WILL COMMISSION CUSTOM PIECES! :))
