This painting took on a life of its own. It was supposed to be more likeness oriented and well I get carried away sometimes and went with the energy of the musician more than the likeness. This was inspired by a local musician that really plays amazingly. It is the 3rd in the local musician series and turned into a knife work.
My methods are both painterly and detailed at times moving between more realism and abstract in style as I feel led by a painting. Most of my subjects span from experiences I have lived or passions I indulge in. Each piece captures my mood, thoughts, and desires at the time it was painted. I like to play light against shadow to set the mood of my work. I work with both Acrylic and Oil to accomplish my end results. Though I prefer Oil, I enjoy the energy that acrylics allow in my quick painterly style.
My name is Morphd Mo Hawk. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. Michael "Morphd" Montgomery began painting in earnest in high school, as a result of football injury. It was a way to take up time that was otherwise idle. He started with oil paint, but migrated to acrylics in College, where he began work on an Art major. While in College he eventually migrated to a Graphic Artist major where he spent hours upon countless hours drawing letters with mechanical pencil and creating precise illustrations. At this time he decided that he was more of a designer than illustrator, and pursued this concentration. Today he returns to his roots as a fine artist.
