This man has a resemblance to the late great Edgar Allen Poe. The painting is meant to show that like a story it has a beginning, middle, and end. It starts with a drawing,then an underpainting. The underpainting is left showing through. Then the colors are blocked in like on the right. Ended with final blending, as displayed on the left. The process is laid out for the viewer. The pieces breaking away symbolize how a person can get lost in a story or painting and come part of it.
"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.
