In the FAUVISM series ( my most recent portrait work ), I break away from my traditional photorealistic painting style and explore a freer, somewhat looser approach. Using large swaths of color and movement, I've painted portraits of familiar faces of today to those of decades and centuries past. Compared to my photoreal paintings, I am able to complete a fauvism painting much quicker, and because I am a prolific painter, I can price these originals extremely reasonably.  Contact me for a custom commission acquisition.

The paintings in this series give the viewer a glimpse of the 'Roadside Americana' style that Guçwa became most noted for. They capture the quickly fading roadside icons of the mid-20th-century. It is through this style that the artist earned the title of 'Kingneon.

In 1998, I was made an Offically Licensed  fine artist for Harley-Davidson, Chevrolet/Corvette, and Mattel Toys/Hot Wheels Division. 

I still accept commissions from proud Harley or Corvette owners.

Although the primary subject of my work has been vintage neon signs, over the years I've painted various subjects just for fun and to experience a change. In this category, I've posted several of them along with available reproductions of various subjects.
