Ready to Hang
This painting is to remind you to keep calm in your toughest moments. Stare your fears in the eye and overcome them. Even in the face of defeat if you remain grounded you will come out victorious! The techniques used are to give the bear a digital feel in these cyber stimulated times. A lot of people fear not making a big enough impact on social media and are starving for likes and comments. The idea comes from a fellow by the artist name Jung Youth. He hired me to design a cover for his new album with the title "stay chill" ."Everything has its wonders even darkness and silence and I learn whatever state I may be in therein to be content ." Helen Keller . For me painting a somber image can alleviate a situation .The process puts my anguish into the open and out of the obscurity .The techniques used are intense and powerful at the same time meticulous and systematic.A certain proficiency is used.My work merges sinister or nefarious ideas and lovable, lighthearted conviction.
My name is Eric "Mobe" Bass. I was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. Now, reside in beautiful Ormond Beach, Florida. I am 28 years old. I live with my beautiful wife Anna and our Boston terrier Otis. I have been a full time artist for 5years. Mostly, working on large scale murals and company commissions. Now that I am living by the beach and have some time, I want to focus my attention on my gallery works. I've worked really hard, day and night, to become the artist I am today. I am self taught, so I go the extra mile to impress.
