    I saw him do a painting of Carlos Santana at halftime of a Golden State Warriors game. At first I was like “WTF?”, as the guy was DANCING as smeared paint on the canvas with his hands. But then you started to see the features come into view, the hat, the eyes, and dammit if those blobs of paint didn’t look EXACTLY like Santana.

    Who happened to be courtside and they brought him out to see his portrait. He kept putting his folded hands to his lips in a sort of theatrical, prayerful pose. The whole thing was pretty cool, which is not what I expected when he started.

    High art? Who needs that crap. This is the real deal.
