last winter i saw a painting on the internet, which i instantly saved in my photos, and spent so long wishing i knew who did it. i finally saw Robert Viveros' work in a random blog and looked up everything he's done...blown away. i love art that mixes opposites, and his gorgeous girls in the pieces combined with the gritty, tough battle wounds and tattoos work so well. great color palette, technique, and the graphic nature behind it. the trademark cigarette dangling from each girl's mouth is also a cool consistant touch, but never boring or repetative. i love, no ADORE his art, maybe one day i'll be lucky enough to own an original.
