Two figures occupy a fantastical space that could be described as mashup of tropical nature, gilt palace and a contemporary city street. The woman look left, both captivated by something off-screen and possibly also in avoidance of the viewer. "This is something that came together over the course of most of the year," explains Scott. "The piece went in so many directions and then I started adding the girl on the right. I loved her profile and decided to kind of copy her. After that it really started to be magical."
Scott works out of a 1947 Chevrolet school bus that is parked permanently in his Texas backyard. His highly expressionistic, figurative work is reminiscent of contemporary street art, largely due to the inclusion of spray paint in his arsenal of media. Scott is inspired by images he comes across in books or in daily life. His bold statement pieces demonstrate artful yet fanciful interpretations of world cultures. Each painting, through its dynamic layers of color and metallics, presents a story that awaits the imaginative viewer.

Tropical Night Geisha is hanging beautifully in our home. The painting surpassed my expectations at every level. It is quite breathtaking and alluring at the same time. We admire it every day and look forward to viewing your additions. Thank you.- S Eidler
