Jeff Claassen - Some Bitch Stole My Lunch Money, Purple Galaxy, 36" x 36"
36" x 36" - mixed media on wood, signed on the back
This is a one of a kind original painting on wood. It is a very thick panel and sticks off the wall 1.5", which I think looks really super duper fancy. The edges have been painted black and the surface has been coated with a thick layer of clear plastic resin. The resin coating provides a protective high gloss finish. It basically looks like a yummy piece of shiny candy.
A word from Jeff about this "mixed media" piece:
The idea behind this series of 3' square "Some Bitch Stole My Lunch Money" paintings came about because I wanted to make something that was large enough to make a statement in somebody's home, but also something that wouldn't break the bank to do so. With that in mind I decided to make these paintings using the street art method of "wheat pasting." The girl in these paintings is adhered to the wood panel the same way a street artist adheres posters to a wall. Sometimes the paper wrinkles, other times you find a slight rip. Personally, I love this raw and gritty aspect of wheat pasting and it also makes each piece uniquely its own.
Wire has been attached to the back so this is ready to hang right out of the package.
