For this Halloween and Dia de los Muertos weekend, checking out Shawn Griggs oil paintings at 1:AM is a great way to kick off your festivities right!

When given the theme of skulls for our “Eternal Sleep” show, Shawn Griggs, aka Redeye, was in his element. Introduced to us by Skew’s mom, we knew when we saw his work he needed to be part of our show. He is a painter, gallery owner, surfer, illustrator, word traveler, and the list goes on. Most recently, he expanded his portfolio by adding oil painting. For “Eternal Sleep”, he contributed three mixed media (including oil and wood) paintings depicting skeletons living the urban lifestyle. Most definitely, a showstopper for our show.  Check out his website: www.redeyelaboratories.com.

Here are pictures of his “S to the J” piece. It is an awesome contribution and everyday I find some new detail that he expertly included to make this painting complete.
