Stoner Art; Drawing With Smoke

When you think of cannabis and art, usually you think of some trippy design with a million colors that some stoner drew up during a boring class at school… Right? There’s really no high quality cannabis art, other than the traditional stuff you can buy at Spencer’s Gifts.

However, a Brazilian artist has mastered the craft of making photos with marijuana smoke. His work is extremely skillful and interesting, not to mention his technique.

Fernando de la Rocque creates images of religious and political icons, using marijuana smoke as his primary medium. What Rocque does is this; He creates a stencil, much like a graffiti artist would do. He then blows the smoke from a hit on to the stencil, which is laid over a piece of canvas. After the outline of the icon is finished, Rocque dyes, paints, and shades everything to pull the piece together. Of course, since the main medium used to form the art is considered illegal, Rocque has encountered quite a bit of controversy from his series “Blow Job – Work Of Blowing”, the exhibit that contains the marijuana art.

Rocque was interviewed by the Brazilian paper, The Rio Times, and the quote he gave was perfect; “More important than freedom to smoke marijuana is the freedom to think about it and make art with it. Polemic issues divide opinions, forcing people to think and debate. Inertia is useless when we want to overcome something.” Considering that art has always been the pillar of free speech and individuality, it’s kind of hypocritical that Rocque would have to deal with a such a negative backlash. While the art itself is created with marijuana smoke, the images themselves are less than offensive.

There have been far more absurd mediums used to paint photos, including the blood of the artist. Since the marijuana art doesn’t depict marijuana, there really is no reason that it should be frowned upon. People don’t get ostracized for using paint or charcoal. Cannabis isn’t harmful and it’s resin leavings definitely aren’t harmful. The worst thing that would come from this kind of artwork is the potential that the paper would give off that resiny scent that a kicked bowl does.

I have been doing art since I was in elementary school, yet its been natural to me for a very long time. I fell in love with the idea of being able to create something from nothing. I have been painting for approximately 2 years, but have been creating art from a young age. I was inspired by my native roots, and felt compelled to continue the ways of my ancestors.

The estimated time frame for a certain piece depends on whether I’m painting, sculpting, carving or wood burning. The time spent on a painting generally is a couple of days depending on the size of the canvas and the complexity of the design. I use all different sorts of mediums such as; paint, wood, canvases, jeans, shoes, hats, clay, and wooden pipes.

Comics are what got me into art. The artwork is so expressive, imaginative, and fun. I’ve been drawing since I was 4, but didn’t start painting until age 20. I painted Fantasy art for over 10 years and just recently made this cannabis art and started doing art shows/events.

Some pieces take over 200 hours, some take just a day. It’s funny, the ones that took the least time are the most well-received.

What’s your favorite way to smoke weed bong, pipe, joints, blunts?

If I had a vape, that would be my favorite because it’s safest.. but for now I relax with a bong or pipe, and occasional joint.

What kind of music do you listen to while you paint?

Depends on what I’m painting. I like alternative, love songs, smooth jazz, pop, r&b, or rock. When I’m painting cannabis art, I listen to reggae.

E. Charlene Schuster – Featured Marijuana Artist

ECS photoFeatured Marijuana Artist E. Charlene Schuster, sat down to answer some of stonerdays questions: I’m an artist originally from Brooklyn, NY who is now located in a sunnier place . I’ve worked as a makeup artist for 7 years and just recently returned to my roots in Fine Art. I grew up as a big comic book fan and I try to bridge the gap between comic style and realism. I’m entirely self taught so my style is all my own.

1. Whats your name and where are you from? 

E. Charlene Schuster, or just CS for short.

2. Favorite subjects to paint?

I love creating stories, so any time I’m creating something that has a purpose, I’m having fun!

3. How did you get into art? How long have you been Painting?

Artistic skill runs in my family. I have always dabbled in art but because I had a difficult past, I completely ignored it for years. I was a makeup artist for a long time, and always felt like something was missing from what I was doing. I’ve returned back to fine art and discovered it’s the perfect fit. It’s been a little over a year since I’ve been back. Every new piece is better than the last, so I’m looking forward to this journey.

4. How long do you usually spend on one piece and what mediums are you using?

Paintbrushes, paint, canvases etc…I keep going until I’m done. It could be a few hours or it could be a few months. Sometimes I take a break from one for a long while so I don’t get frustrated and hate what I’m doing. I usually get inspired and go back. I try to have a few projects going on at once. My Mary Jane paintings are done with acrylic on wrapped canvas. I’m not going for a realistic look, so I like the brilliance of acrylic. I use everything and dabble with all mediums though. It depends on the look I’m going for.

4. Favorite smoke Bong, pipe, joints, blunts?

I love glass.

5. What inspires you? What kind of music do you listen to while you paint?

Life inspires me! It’s unpredictable when something triggers an idea in me. I have hundreds of ideas a day, most of which I dump into a notebook or sketchbook for sometime later. My playlist now consists of a mix of old and new specific songs that put me in a creative mood. I change the playlist depending on the subject I’m working on.

6. Who is your favorite artist/painter?

I try to be like John Singer Sargent if he was a comic book artist. Let’s see if I’ll get there!

Michael Owens

Arrival

Michael Owens – Featured Marijuana Artist

Hello, my name is Michael Owens. I’m a forty eight year old African American contemporary artist from the tiny town of Nashville, Georgia.

Arrival

Despite my age I’m actually new to the art game even though I’ve dreamed of being a professional artist my whole life.

I didn’t start painting until 2005, when I took my first painting course at Georgia Southern University, although I had been working with various other color media, pencils, pastels, etc. for years.

My media of choice tends to be oil paint on wood panel because I have a more physical style that requires a heavier support. The paint is applied with brushes, pallet knives, sticks or even with fingers, if I’m in that kind of mood. My second favorite is mixed media because it opens up so many creative avenues and possibilities. Mixing media expands the expressive power of art by adding layers of texture, color, and meaning.

Bob and JimiYou know, it’s funny.

I love music but I don’t listen to music while I’m working. Music, especially the kind with lyrics, tends to distract me.

Many times I have listened to certain songs to help create a mood or state of mind before painting, not during. I’ll listen to old school like Earth Wind and Fire to make me feel good about the world, or maybe some Bob Marley or Hendrix to put me in a more rebellious mood.

A painting can take anywhere from months to complete to only a few days. For example, Clarence Thomas was completed start to finish in about one week, because I had a clear idea of where it was heading due to a prior attempt that was unsuccessful.

That failure made me see exactly what I had done wrong.

The Bob and Jimi piece was labored over for about six months as it was worked on only occasionally.
Clarence Thomas
As a small child I remember reading an illustrated storybook about the life of the abolitionist Frederick Douglass. I have no idea where it came from nor could I locate it now, but I can’t tell you how much that book helped to inspire a love of history and art that survives to this day. In those pages I could feel his thirst for knowledge and his love of freedom, the two things that drive my work today.

I also findinspiration in my family, my community, people I’ve met and places I’ve been.

My artistic heroes include well known contemporary African American artists like Kehinde Wiley, Michael Ray Charles, and Kara Walker as well as historical political artists like David Alfaro Siqueiros, Kerry James Marshall, Jacob Lawrence and Faith Ringgold.
