February 24, 2011 – “Going to Pieces” Mixed Media on Wood Panel
“Going to Pieces” is a piece that represents the stress we all feel on a daily basis where we feel like we’re being pulled in too many different directions. Temptations, responsibilities, even your own dreams and goals can seem to add stress.
Size: 8″x8″x1 3/4″ deep
Based on a character sketch and part of a daily, year long project called MASK365, “Going to Pieces” comes in at number 284. You can see the rest on freehandprofit.wordpress.com.
Freehand Profit is a Los Angeles based artist who earned his name as a graffiti artist in DC and Northern Virginia. In 2005 he graduated Corcoran College of Art & Design with a BA in Fine Arts. Since then he’s rooted himself in LA’s Hip-Hop scene and has been working to forget what he learned in art school and make work without the pretentiousness that all too often accompanies “good” art.
