Last year, a broke college student named Madison Gregory painted his favorite scene from Dumb and Dumber and sent it to theCHIVE. Go West, Lloyd became a viral internet sensation and thrust Madison into the national spotlight.
Madison's ability to create immediately recognizable yet nuanced stills from films with his thick brush strokes has made Madison the preeminent painter of film scenes in the world. His work has been commissioned by art collectors from Berlin to Malta. Prints of his work are wildly popular these days as well.
For the past six months, Madison has wanted to return to his humble roots at theCHIVE to paint a piece from one of my favorite Murray films, Lost In Translation. It's called Where The Hell Is The Whiskey?
Madison flew from NY to LA to stay at my place last week and craft the Murray. It took 7 days to finish and if you stopped by our offices (hint: with beer) you probably got a sneak-peak. Here's the making of Where The Hell Is The Whiskey?
Prints of all Madison’s amazing work are available on his website.
