Curator's Note: The artist uses an "alla prima" technique (or wet-on-wet technique), which requires a fast-paced method. This mirrors the frenetic style of the portrait, asking the viewer to think about the multi-faceted personality of an individual.
In an alla prima manner, the artists attacks an abstract impressionistic oil portrait. With no particular person in mind, just the male facial structure, it leaves the artist's window of creativity open. Giving the audience the ability to compare the painting to a real individual. Leaving some of the underpainting visible it shows some of the process the artist takes to complete the freestyle portrait."Everything has its wonders even darkness and silence and I learn whatever state I may be in therein to be content ."

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.
