100x70cm. Dirt and gold leaf on wood. 2012.
Portrait of Wu-Tang member, Ol’ Dirty Bastard. The heavy areas of tone are a stencil filled in with mud and left to dry, while the the lighter shading was done with dry dirt rubbed into the wood canvas. The grill is in gold leaf. In the immortal words of ODB “Bite my style, I’ll bite your motherfucking ass”.
