Michael Jackson Thriller Pop Art Portrait Painting with Staring Eyes - Josh Schwartz

"Midnight" Michael Jackson Thriller Painting


Say hello to MJ  🎨🧟‍♂️🌘🦇  The Thriller music video’s imagery is so friggin’ iconic, I wanted to capture it in a way that really "pops." This is a 30”x40” canvas painting, heavily textured to add dimension, and has glowing eyes with a “staring” effect.👁👁 They appear to follow your every move... The same trick was once used in Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction. 

MEDIUM: Mixed materials and paints on stretched canvas with built in lighting for eyeball effect.

SIZE: 30" x 40"

DATE: 2020
