This Painting has been SOLD to a Private Collector and now resides in California, USA.


“Splatterday” measures 12 x 36″ Large and is on Gallery Canvas. Created in a street art /graffiti style. This Work of Art also has texture added on with a palette knife. The colors have great contrast and are vivid for a dramatic effect. The great white shark was drawn with a paintbrush and painted by hand with detail to enhance the appearance of the shark. There is a hidden city under the rising water with colorful buildings and a splattered painting effect in many colors. A modern abstract representation of one of our favorite top predators of the ocean.

I love sharks, to me they are such interesting animals and to draw them and capture the wild essence of their nature is my intent. Hope you like this one as much as I do. I decided to put it on auction for $49 with NO RESERVE to give people a chance to win one of my signed originals at an affordable price. I have been contacted by other countries who always have to pay shipping and custom fees so the price is great for them. Wish I could provide more affordable pieces, but it is impossible since I am a full time artist and live off my work. This is a March Madness / Spring has Sprung Sale for my fans. I would never be able to make it without you. Thank you all for supporting my art and a living artist! This is only on auction for another 4 days so if you want to place a bid click here.

Artist Thoughts of the Day:

I like to journey outside of tradition and push it to the next level, always striving for something different. Moving forward, thinking beyond boundaries and rules. No rules govern my art. I have always been a rebel in the art world, not following tradition and always trying to stun my audience with the macabre, misfit art, weird thoughts and my own beliefs. Although I do believe in the law and order of our society. Art is my out, a way to jump the conscious mind into my fantasy world and it totally satisfies me. When I create something, I have no need for more than my own thoughts. When I am in my zen painting state, I have limitless walls to a crazy mind push with no suffocation from rules of any kind. We are all born with a gift and we should all follow our hearts and be free within our minds in whatever area we excel in. If we had no creativity we would not evolve into anything more than a machine. I am Alive…~Laura Barbosa~ “Strength, Passion, Courage, Belief”

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward….” — Apple Computer, 1997
