The reason I chose the title for this piece is cause i painted it live downtown Fort Collins CO , an was inspired by Guns & Roses song PARADISE CITY, THIS IS A WINNING PIECE OF TRUE ART. The lyrics of song are painted on this piece, and guaranteed to blow your mind in person. painted on a wood canvas, built by me all hand painted to a smooth satin finish.
My name is Derick Kurtz, I’m 36 years old, born and raised in Ft. Collins, CO. I have a passion for pop culture art. I have been an artist for 20 years. My art is loud, bright and screams color. My art is a new realm of pop art. I use wood canvas, its a natural wood to elevate the bright vibrant colors that catch your eyes. Some have said I am the next Andy Warhol. All my art is hand painted, one of a kind. I take great pride in each piece that I create to bring a realm of smiles and joy to the people who own my art. I am also a RAWartist for Boulder/Denver. RAWartist awarded me in the top 3 position for Artist of the Year. I also had the experience of painting side by side with renowned artists Zoey Stevens. I met Zoey out in Southern CA, were my art took off and got recognized. After living in Huntington Beach, CA for five (5) years The Mint Gallery of Fine Art was the first to display my art. I have also been featured in Denver’s 303 magazine for my art as pop culture “Saved my life” article that was written about me. I have also been in westward magazine as well I am back in CO now to bring a culture shock to the art world.
