Space Chimp!

Oh, space chimp. I’ve been toying with similar tattoo ideas around this one for years. I ended up giving this painting to a dear friend from college. Before that, this one spent a semester on display in a building of my alma mater in 2008-2009.

About Wiegeist

I began painting in 2008 when I found myself relieved of academic pressures and needed a hobby to fill the void. It was on a whim, yet I almost instantly was hooked. Since then, it has become my passion, my therapy, my "flow" experience (see the work of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi). My art has been shown in galleries in VA, NY, KY, OH, and AZ. I participate in art festivals local to Cincinnati and have selected works currently on display at One Main Gallery in Milford, OH. I am inspired by Dia dos los Muertos, various principles/theories in psychology, and life's oddities. Whimsy, irony, tragedy/comedy, gallows humor, satire, cynicism, and gratitude are all on my palette. Acrylic paint is my primary medium. My abstract paintings are an expression of catharsis, chaos, mood, depth, and texture. Commission work is available starting at $250.
