Fly Dye Art

Today on campus, I had a chance to nourish my artistic soul by buying an original painting by Tony B. Conscious, the Ghetto Van-Go.  He introduced his unique “Fly Dye Art” in 2004.  He uses acrylic paint, stencils and glitter in a style that’s a combination of graffiti art, airbrushing and tie dye.  Tony had a selection of paintings at LMU today and, after a long struggle with myself to decide on just one, I made the selection you see here.  If you’re interested in seeing more of his work, or even picking up an original yourself, you can usually find him on Venice Beach.

Now, I just have to figure out where to hang it in my dorm room and how to keep it hanging without putting any holes in the walls.
