Graffitti Cows

In the rural country side around me, I find many farms with cattle roaming around. After living in the city all my life, I have found a fascination with these creatures. Seeing the cows that were painted for the streets of Chicago made me want to create a cow that had been affected by the inner city. Therefore I started putting graffitti on my pastorial cows. Right now they have their fields with grass and streams, but one day that will all change.

More Cows


The cows in North Georgia are apparent in many fields close to where I live. Most artists paint what they see around them. I decided to do the same. I did a series of paintings based on these cows.


Living in the North Georgia mountains has given me a new perspective on my world. I have found alot of farm equipment that seems to be abandoned in the fields. The colors have changed with the weathering. I have used those as my subject matter.
