ID Number: 3037
Year: 1993 – 2009
Size: 48 x 24 inches
Description: This painting was started back in 1993 in San Francisco as a traditional Last Supper homage. It then spent 10 years in the artist’s studio being used as a work table holding the painting supplies. This photo above was taken before the 10 years of use as a table.
No earlier photos exist of this piece; in fact this painting inspired the artist to start taking photos of each stage of each painting. This theme became the backbone of his Back-Story Underpainting style.
During the past year, the artist brought these two similar paintings closer by attacking the painting in the approach of a graffiti artist. Notice the play with the glazing and the flat grey.
This painting is part of a pair of paintings, The First Supper is the other one.
