Portfolio Review: Artist Creative Shields Shares His Favorite Paintings

5. Pistola

"The 'Pistola' joint is cool because it was an experiment I did the day of my first art show in '09. I did it as a gift to show love to the people supporting me. I did two of them-- a girl and a guy. I ended up giving both away at the show. I wasn't going to do them at all but it turned out to be a love offering for the people who came out to the show. I was inspired by Mos Def's song 'Pistola.' Conceptually, I like the concept of love because it's so diverse with so many aspects to it. I took some street art stencils and kept it clean. This is a cool piece that I'm gonna keep developing."
