NVC Crew - BIG*L

readytodie_nvc_crew_2

As we get closer to the opening of the MAD*L Citizens show which is October 25th @ LIFT in the Detroit area, expect to see lots of previews of custom 10" pieces.  Some of these are  excellent pieces from the best in the biz.  NVC Crew's tribute to the Notorious B.I.G -- BIG*L combines Bao and Spive's trademark hand-sculpting with a faux TV head featuring wood panel trimmed, fitted, shaped,applied and polished by Spive. 

Instead of going for a wood "effect", NVC went full bore and used real wood ;-)  The knobs come from NVC's vintage knob collection and helped to add to the illusion of a real TV set.

The sculpting is NVC at it's best with nice details including the Timberland's, hoodie, and clever use of the MADL form to deliver a casual  hands-in-the-pocket pose. Finally, NVC flexes it's painting chops with a portrait of the late rapper. 

If you're in the Detroit area don't miss MAD*L Citizens on 10.25 @ LIFT.
