Original print by Sean Dietrich
Sean Dietrich wakes up every morning and stares at a blank canvas, hoping to create something that inspires billions of people to give him money so he doesn't have to get a 'real job', as well as keep his gorgeous wife happy and his kids clothed and fed.
The fact that his clients include billionaires, cyber defense companies, major video game entities, industrial designers, famous people, photographers, munition experts, Texas highway patrol officers, djs, bartenders, breweries, restaurant groups, lawyers, rolling paper companies, magazines, drag queens, pot growers, authors, comic book publishers, bar owners, rock stars, old people, young people, rights, lefts, uppers and downers, proves he should probably keep on painting:)
This was a fun little piece painted live at the CHAMPS Trade show in Las Vegas at the OCB booth, March of 2017. The idea was to create a simple painting that I could finish live in 6 hours—this is what came to be. The octopus controlling the woman, and with the negative space between his tentacle and the seaweed, her body is formed. If you look close the octopus is mechanical as designated by the gears. So one controls the other who controls the other and on and on... But is the woman REALLY there? Who knows. Who cares. Just a rad piece.
