I decided to have fun for this show and do something not too literal and humorous in order to help loosen up for my August show. Every year Bill Gates has what people call “BillG BBQ” where all the graduating Microsoft interns gather at his lakeside mansion in Seattle. Here they eat tons of BBQ and pay homage to their tech-idol and ask him Godly questions as Bill is hula hooped by hundreds of PC patriots…
This piece depicts young Bill Gates with BBQ smothered lips. It also functions as an interactive mask with handles on the back so you can gather your own tribe. I haven’t used acrylics in a very long time. I’ve always preferred oils as my medium of choice, but when you want quick try acrylics can’t be beat. I had as much fun transporting my art on my bike as much as I did making it!
