McBiff
Huntington Beach, California

Mcbiff is a pseudonym, obviously. He was given the name at 18 when a friend noticed an Irish-tinted resemblance to Biff from Back to the Future. The name never stuck, but he always thought it was funny. Years later, he painted an enamel piece on glass in the style of Ed Roth. It was the only piece he ever painted in that style so he used a pseudonym as the signature, and remembered the name his friend had given name. He liked the way it looked so much that he started signing everything as Mcbiff. McBiff is heavily influenced by mid 20th Century American minimalism and popular culture, which can be recognized as nostalgic and modern at the same time.

Yes, more smaller paintings would be nice. I'm looking forward to seeing them.

I'm glad you like it RU. I'm sorry it is a little too expensive. This is the largest piece I have done, it took close to 3 months to complete. I will be doing some smaller scenes like this soon. I hope you come back to see them.

This is a little out of my price range, but I really like this. I like the shadows, the crazy brickwork, the dancing flames in the fireplace, but especially the vibrancy and the composition. The figures look like they usually are full of motion, but that you captured them in a rare moment of stillness. Do more like this!

Hello!!!! So this is my first U-log post. Obviously. Well, I can either be long winded or short spoken. There usually isn't an in between, so I will take some of my own advise in my head when I read other blogs, get to the point and shut up. Thank you all for viewing my work, I'm excited to be on Ugallery. I have a mid century modern illustration feel in my work, I love doing it and it's always changing. I don't think I have found my niche' yet, it its so close I can smell it's face. Ask me any questions you like.
