10 Glimpses of Guernica for REMASTERS of the UNIVERSE

Detail from my ReMaster of Picasso's "Guernica"
ReMASTERS of the UNIVERSE is the brainchild of Nashville artists Jeff Bertrand and Brooke E as the duo have unleashed an army of a couple dozen regional artists to re-imagine classic paintings.  Along with the show's host, Blackbird Tattoo and Gallery, the curators have an unforgettably surreal evening of live entertainment planned for the opening reception TONIGHT- August 11th!  Just for starters, $10 at the door gets you in for ALL the artwork plus Music City Burlesque, who will be modeling for a LIVE painting session with the artists.  Musical entertainment will be provided by DJ’s Dorian and Jix, Spoken Nerd, The Greater Good, Last of the Horsemen, Erin Rae and Fuckshow while you dig on appetizers provided by 80 Days Catering.  The show starts late at 9PM for all you Tomato Art Festers so make this your late-night entertainment!  (Click HERE for a preview of my new works for Tomato Art Fest which is also today!)

I'll have two new illustrations on display in ReMASTERS of the UNIVERSE!  First, I've recreated a painting which changed my entire outlook on art with Salvador Dali's "Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War.)"  My third eye was sprung wide when I was turned onto this particular dose of surrealism as a teenager.  My second cover which you're getting a sneak peek of right here is Pablo Picasso's "Guernica."  I translated this 25 foot long masterpiece into about 18 inches!  Here are 10 process pictures of my ReMastered illustration...

You'll have to drop by Blackbird Tattoo and Gallery (2506 Franklin Pike / Nashville) tonight to see the finished product along with my Salvador Dali Cover.  Of course, I'm just one of over two dozen artists who will be on hand along with the Burlesque, Live Music, DJs, Live Painting, Catered Food and Drinks!
