About The Painting:

Commencing upon the precipice of homelessness, “The Boy In The Box” follows the rigid geometric structuring of the “The Up-Side Of Down” and represents the perpetual quest for personal freedom and breaking outside of the box.

“Astranomelly” was the culminating piece of my artist residency in Downtown San Diego. During the months of April/May (2012) I spent 50 days painting on Broadway Avenue, generally averaging 10-12 hours per session and never taking a single day off. Basically living in the studio as I found myself on the precipice of homelessness, this climactic creation measures 6.5′ x 10′ and is representative of my collective experiences as “The Boy In The Box.” The culture shock of the residency experience made this both an artistic opportunity and a sociological experiment as I found myself imbued with the regionalism of this foreign community and was indoctrinated into their culture. The individuals that visited and shared their stories during my tenure in the box were all incorporated into the painting, their names inscribed in the underpainting that surrounds the iconic vortex (or black hole) that is simultaneously a symbol of the outward eyes looking in at me as I poured my soul into the canvas. The concept for “Astranomelly” came to me on a car ride home at 3:30am as I listened to the track “Battling the Sun” by local musician Astra Kelly. I had met Astra earlier that evening when she stopped in during a rare San Diego storm. The rest of the story I now leave with you.

Original 78in x 120in: $39,000

Hand-Signed & Custom Embellished Giclees: Available for 4x listed retail prices of standard canvas option

*Custom sizes are available. Shipping and payment/payment plan terms vary for originals and custom orders. Black or white floater frame available for custom orders. Add 25% to custom giclee cost for floater frame.

A giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) is a high-end and upscale fine art reproduction. Each giclee is custom created just for you and stretched on a 1.5" stretcher bar.

In the giclee process, the image is generated from a high-resolution digital scan and printed with UV inks onto archival quality canvas. An ultra-fine stream of non-toxic water based ink, more than 4 million droplets per second, is jet-sprayed onto the canvas. This produces a combination of over 3 million possible colors resulting in prints that are lush and vibrant with the look and tonality of a fine art painting. A fantastic advantage of giclee printing is that the digital images can be reproduced to almost any size, giving me the ability to customize prints for a specific client.

Giclee prints have gained worldwide acceptance in the art community and can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris, displaying works which cannot be allowed out of the museum cellars and would otherwise never be shown to the public.

Take a canvas giclee, give it a little extra love, make it one-of-a-kind, and you’ll have an artist enhanced giclee. My artist enhanced giclees are custom created and painted specially for you. I hand-embellish each one of these creations with paint, adding brushstrokes, textures, and pops of color. The paint really brings the giclee to life, adding bright and vivid energy. There is nothing like it. My artist enhanced giclees are the next best thing to my originals and at a fraction of the cost. Each one is hand-signed by yours truly.

I recommend this product

Always amazing art now at even better prices!

I've always loved your work and now it's even more accessible for supporters with a modest income such as myself. Afterpay made payment options so easy. This has always been my favorite painting. I love the timelapse and was blessed to see it in person once. So happy to have a small version of it for myself. The quality is amazing!
