Cryptoboy is based on "Super Richie" covers of Harvey Comics and was originally likely penned by the amaaazzzing Warren Kremer!!
This piece has been produced on one of my classic concrete bases. Concrete skimmed over the face and edges, making it look like a slab....but not much heavier than a normal canvas. It took me years to develop this method, so that it sticks, is permanent and strong!!!
Just a stunner!
My Industrial artworks flaunt between recycled wood, Pallets and Special Formula concrete bases.
The Wooden based pieces are always recycled and upcycled palettes, doors or timber signs. I will always seek to provide a suitable, grungy and raw base to work on. These pieces are unique and a prized part of what I do.
The other side of my "industrial” range are Canvas frames coated with my new Concrete formula and trowelled to a thickness of approx 10mm (including the edges). They weigh a little more than a standard canvas and all up weigh only about 10 to 13kg. But the look on wall, is basically a 45mm thick "Slab". It is permanent, flexible (yep, that’s not a typo) and will withstand anything a normal canvas can within reason. I guarantee it! It took me 2 years to develop this process and it achieves the ultimate in Industrial/street styling.
The concrete based pieces are created on a 40mm frame wrapped in linen, with a triple gloss coat and gallery finished edges. I take my depth of canvas to a different level believing a canvas has 5 sides and should be painted and finished as such. Did I mention I love commissions? So, if you would like a similar piece to this one, different sizes, colours formats etc, just hit me up! I’d love to hear what you have in mind.
I have been a full-time artist for 10 years now and feel blessed that I can do this wonderful thing for a job. In that time, I have now sold over 5000 pieces globally, with pieces in collections in some 30 countries...and of course most of them have been at the larger end of the scale.
My spunky wife Wendy is CFO and runs a lot of the “day to days” including logistics, leaving me to answer enquiries and do that other important part.....painting!
Most of my paintings arrive ready to hang. I do recommend that the really really big ones, some of the heavier pieces and some of the specialist pieces, such as pallets be installed by a professional hanger. This is cheaper than you may think and would be in the $150 to $250 range. I have partners in most areas that I can recommend if you need help. If you would like more information, just ask away. Wendy & I want to make it as easy as possible for you.

Global shipping is included in the listed prices however, if you happened to be in an extremely remote area, we may put our hand up and ask for a little bit of monetary assistance. We package the paintings securely in twin walled, reinforced, CUSTOM MADE “Franko” cartons, with additional protective inserts & of course the painting is wrapped in bubble wrap for rub protection.
