Akira Beard

WOW! I LOVE the work of San Francisco based Akira Beard!

“Made in America, by an American, for all Americans…” …the artworks consist of pop-iconic portraits that best symbolize the concept being described for that particular painting. Some of the ideas that I work with include identity, consumerism, defining art, altruism, individualism, and so on. The medium is watercolor, acrylic, paint marker, ink, and graphite on paper. The process begins with the concept, and from there I choose the figure that would be the poster person for such. From there it becomes a form follows function pursuit using the aesthetics/ mediums to visually express the desired idea/feeling, resulting in a loaded portrait. ~ Akira Beard
