Traditionally street artists do not always start their work from a nice, white, blank canvas. There is the challenge of painting on a highly textured surface, and oftentimes on top of the old work of others.
Petite blanc e, Little white elephant is like finding a surprise within the elements of the painting. The contrast of the black with the red, yellow, and white and images of soda and prices in the background are much like what you find in traditional street art, now more recently found in many homes and art galleries across the world.
More About The Artist
Chris Herman is a graphic artist who began practicing art in early 2000, which consisted of a collection of black and white faces on stickers, stencils, and large photocopied posters. Often referred to as Street-Art, they were applied in various urban locations around the Los Angeles area onto electrical utility boxes, bus benches, construction site scaffolds, etc.
In 2014 after an 8 year hiatus from art, Chris returned to the original faces he created during his street campaign and began applying them to small 1-3 color paintings using acrylic on gessoed, cover stock. This eventually evolved to larger paintings on wood as triptych and diptych paintings.
