Castro Camera- acrylic and ink painting on gallery wrapped canvas

913.00

Right now it’s cloudy, cold and icy here in Michigan so I’m creating my own sunshine on canvas.

I get asked a lot if my paintings have meaning behind their names, and the answer is a resounding yes.
-
Each painting has to resonate with me and what inspires me to create.
-
Although what inspires me to create joyfully bold paintings is love, my artistic style is influenced by the culture of America from the midcentury.
-
Many times my work is named after events in American history, often times those portrayed in films. I’m a huge film nerd that did my masters degree in film theory, so many paintings are named after movies I studied.

This one is inspired by the legend Harvey Milk, a gay rights activist who made history in 1977 by being the first openly gay public official. He was true to who he was his entire life and he died far too young.

He’ll always be a legend and a treasure to the city of San Francisco, and a trailblazer to the LGBT community.. Castro Camera was where he hosted a safe place for the LGBT community to be in San Francisco.

Love it? Don’t wait. There’s only 1 in the entire world.
