A note from Brian Viveros on the hand embellishment process:
– First what I did is I watered down some acrylic flesh tones and ran it through my custom micron to bring up certain areas bringing this print more to life. I wanted to bring more life to this print as a whole so I worked on each one individually adding to the face and body, just lil’ subtleties ya’ know – not taking away but adding more, something special to each one so its not just your everyday print.
– I then focused on my signature cigarette and eyes adding more detail with white to highlight the lips a little more and the cigarette ash looks even more lit and the eyes I made even deeper and more seductive with a slight touch of black.
– Last I came in with red (“The Blood”) overlaying each rose, her lips and the cape of the bullfighter so that each really pops and adds a little more life and richness to it. Practically bleeding off the paper.
What’s most important is just taking the time to give back & add a little somethin’-somethin’ for those that are purchasing this special print, not to mention the complimentary Spanish bullfighting reddish-black frame to keep her safe. The additions and embellishments are subtle, but it’s just cool and makes it that much more.
We’re honored to bring you all this special print. We showcased the original of “Mess With The Bull” at last December’s GenArt Vanguard fair during Art Basel and it was one of the most popular works we brought down to Miami by far.
Please shoot a mail to email@example.com now to request your print. There’s been a huge demand for this, and we expect this dirty dozen to sell out quick, so please don’t sleep if you’re serious about wanting one.

Above is a great video documenting the mural that KMNDZ and Ekundayo rocked out for the ‘Movers & Shakers’ show that took place earlier this year at POVevolving in Chinatown. Shot by Job Alonso, the video came out just great.
Look for much more from both of these guys in the year ahead and if you are down in San Diego this weekend for ComiCon, keep your eyes peeled.
