Andre the Giant: Big Bang
Acrylic on 14" x 17" bristol board
Artwork by Rob Schamberger, painted in 2022
When I do Andre the Giant paintings I keep wanting to turn them into giant monster scenes so I've decided to keep leaning into that! That's where I'm coming from on this, presenting him as a titanic kaiju nearly dwarfing the giant explosion behind him. I used a palette of warm reds and oranges, except for the white of the cloud framing his head and the terrifying whites of his eyes.
The fun of making paintings is that I can do whatever I want and push things as far as my imagination and brushes will take me. Sometimes it's cool to go wild and this Andre piece definitely allowed me to do that!
