Ironic in its title. No one is laughing. The idea behind this piece is to show no matter the age and exterior beauty, sorrow will cause one to crack from the inside out. This is a reminder to find inner beauty first and you will radiate exterior beauty. This stylized portrait completed in oil and enamel exemplifies many techniques. Back on black stripes in the background give the piece more depth and dimension using matte black and gloss.
"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.
