‘Go West Lloyd’ artist paints Shay Maria, meets her (15 Photos)

Since we posted 'Go West Lloyd' on theCHIVE artist Madison Gregory has blown up. His unique oil paintings of movie scenes have captured the attention of the filmgoing public and we're glad to say we had a hand in his current success.

A month ago, Madison called me after seeing Shay's photo gallery presented without photoshop and said he'd like to paint 'A Shay'. After he finished the painting, we brought Shay and Madison together at theCHIVE offices so Shay could see herself immortalized on canvass and sign the back of the painting (I think I got a good angle on that one). Shay freaked out with excitement and I can only imagine what Madison was thinking after meeting the girl whose face he'd been staring at for weeks.

As always check out Madison Gregory's amazing website. Shay Maria has a massive cult following these days. If you're a fan, you can actually bid on the painting right here and bring home the original 'Shay' by Madison Gregory. It really is an amazing piece.

      Ouch, I didn't say to light the painting on fire……..

      Just saying, not all dudes with mustaches are creepers, but all creepers have mustaches. (science!)

    BTW … it looks like eBay killed it! The auction has been removed … :S

  • JFyn

    There's something just a little bit off with picture #5 … maybe it's the way 'Go West Lloyd' is holding the painting, or where the painting is resting on Shay…. or maybe it's just my jealousy !! Nice work Go West!

    • Morgan Freeman

      the painting is called "Go west Lloyd", not the painter.

    #13 wins for best angle.

  • We wanna know

    How much it sold for when it is sold!

    This is why I love theChive. 2 success stories owing at least in part if not all to theChive exposure they received. And then you take it to infinity and beyond. Gotta love it. Keep Chiving – the world needs MOAR.

    Why is she not wearing Chivery clothing (http://www.thechivery.com/products/shopify-t-shirt)??

    Funny, he painted her the way she would have been photoshopped.

  • Henry Gibson

    It's a fabulous painting on it's own, but I don't think it looks very much like her. It looks a little more like Olivia Munn to me.

  • kazyctn

    That guy looks almost identical to Mike Patton

  • Anonymous

    Yup, good angle, Jon….

  • Mad
