Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Il Sovrano (The Sovereign) is an 84" inch mixed media artwork on hand primed heavy duty canvas.

This artwork was created using several techniques involving acrylic paint, paint marker, and acrylic spray paint.
The art was painted with a giant feather duster in place of a brush. I used thinned acrylic paint allowing the canvas' fibers to absorb some of the paint to create a stained effect. There's also heavy body acrylic paint squeezed straight from the tube for a thick impasto quality. The rough texture of the canvas is also visible upclose and creates a great essence.

This began as an automatic drawing in my sketchbook. I translated this to the canvas with additional detail and color theory. Automatism in art is a way of drawing straight from the subconscious mind with out direct conscious control. This allows the mind to draw in full expressive power and spirit.

-Signed and titled on the front
