Behind The Art: The American Hustle

Behind The Art: The American Hustle


On first glance this painting probably comes off as some ode to strippers. In actuality it's not about strippers. I when I originally created the watercolor study of what would later become this painting, I wanted to have a conversation about America.






Here's a video of myself creating the watercolor study.



Particularly how America attempts to pimp us on it's poll, teasing us with the opportunity to get higher in life... but forcing us to have to hustle in ways that will strip who we are in pursuit of the mighty dollar.




It's me kind of asking, how far are we willing to go for the American Dream?



While we hustle to get to a better position in life and stack our bread we never fully notice how America can often already have us locked down under their view... and those of us that realize it move to figure how to level up around that.
