There's a consistent demand from my collectors for artwork featuring WWE's Japanese SuperStars so I thought it'd be fun to make a Select Series wave totally dedicated to these competitors. This gave me the opportunity to do my first-ever painting of Sarray, plus new portraits of Kushida, Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka!
The different presentation of pro wrestling in Japan, especially on the aesthetic level, gives me a totally different sort of inspiration for what I do, and it's my hope that this shows through in the final work.
Also, all Select Series waves in 2021 will have the chance of one of these original 4" x 6" paintings of The Fiend being inserted! I made 24 total, 17 on the black background and 7 on the red. Freaky-looking, aren't they?
Set 1 of every wave will come with one guaranteed and then there will be one more in each wave inserted randomly. Especially right now buying a piece of original art may not be the easiest thing to do, but I want more of my collectors to experience what it's like. Even though I used a stencil to make these, they're all slightly different and unique. So the one you get is The One.
