A lot of Omens new pieces look as if his letters are lying on a colorful water bed or one of those massive pillows you lay on when going to a hookah spots (we don’t actually know anyone who goes to those places). Or they are in a puffy straight jacket? Ether way we are into them.

Gary is no “Stranger” to painting extra crispy cursive fonts with various words. Looks like an oversized vinyl sticker.
