All the lovers and fans my work, first of all I want to thank you and tell you I love you!
Thank you for understanding and being generous towards all my ideas. Thank you for buying my painting and giving me the opportunity to share with you all the wonderful moments I had in my painting career. It impresses me of your willingness to consider my work for your gorgeous home. Thank you so much for your warmest words, praises and gratitude. It’s overwhelming for all love that I get from all of you. Thank you!!!
Let me share with you a story behind recreating my earlier works. I have been painting for 35 years now. Over the years my talent had evolved to new heights, giving me the confidence to revive the older works with newer energies. Some of my ideas and philosophical reach has also changed overtime which we all do as we grow older. I started to realize that the exact reproduction of my own paintings does not enthuse me anymore. I see the details differently even though my passion for things remains the same. As a result, my work looks the same like before with more maturity in my viewpoint.
For all the good reasons in the world, I decided to start recreating the earlier work. I can see the details of the pictures quite differently now. Ideas and inspiration are no different but the details, colors, strokes are more refined.
I love life and essence of beauty around me. I am a romantic person and this relationship obvious in my paintings subjects with its recreation or original. I keep finding ways to reach out to more audience so that I keep delivering this beauty that never dies to my fans and friends. So it is very clear that many of my recreations are completely new paintings but at the same time they are not completely new paintings they are the version from the older paintings. They are not reproduction either, and these are not original too. I am painting my beloved subjects, emotions, feelings, through the process of reincarnation and it is the same cycle that repeats every time, but shown in a different time.
My heart is telling me that by recreating I can help and reach out to many art lovers. This way, we all together can see the beauty. As the author of the works, I want to ensure you that everything offered on the site are authentic. You will see the difference from my original work which proves the new use of materials and better use strokes and talent.
All my recreation has the similar values like the older work with the smaller cost. The originals cannot be sold anymore because they are priceless. Also if you are purchasing the recreated new paintings directly from my personal website it does not violate the copyright and you are still acquiring a valuable piece of finest art that you can be enjoyed by many generations to come.
I invite everyone to take a sneak peek into my studio. Come see me create original paintings. Also come check my students and apprentices at work helping me create recreations. I can only produce so much myself and like all famous artists I started having students. They help me with painting backgrounds and drawing basic outlines. Then I come in to finish rest of the painting. If you plan to visit my studio please contact me for an appointment.
Mr. Caution ad.
This painting is called "I too have a dream" and was part of the largest easel in the world.
Large Scale painting in Sections: 12 feet x 16 Feet
About the Painting and the world record:
The largest easel is 22.885 m (75ft 1in) tall and 10.668 m (35 ft) wide. It was made by Gurmej SinGh aka Mr. CAUTION of Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA, and was measured on 23 September 2009.
World’s Largest Easel was displayed at "THE BOB" in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA during the world’s largest art contest--Artprize 2009.
Caution stood on the world’s largest easel for 7 days without coming down
to celebrate equality among all. The Easel was designed by Mr. Caution with the
help of Grand Rapids Company JDH Engineering. The event was sponsored by THE
BOB and JDH engineering.
The entire easels outer layer was drip painted by Mr. Caution with bright fascinating color palette. Mr. Caution wanted to share his achievement with others even after the show was over and done with. He wanted to make this project a monumental in history. These historical pieces are now available in different sizes for sale at reasonable price at his website: www.MrCaution.com.
The idea for this project came to Mr. CAUTION when he heard of the ArtPrize competition and he immediately began to realize his vision. Caution submitted this project as his entry to the ArtPrize competition on September 23 to October 10, 2009. The Kalamazoo Gazette ran several articles on the project.
The project was aimed to encourage equality, peace, freedom, and nonviolence in day-to-day life. Caution's intent is to inspire many to fulfill their own dreams through this inspirational piece. The painting depicted Mr. Caution himself performing an art stunt while gazing up at the distinguished figures that have inspired him to follow his dreams: Gandhi, Mother Theresa, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
Mr. CAUTION was to jump of the easel to popularize his revolutionary idea and concept of stunt-painting.
are the testimonials from visitors:
"This piece of art is several lines and diagonal lines and geometric shapes and forms. There is a wide varitiy in color and so much of it, that it gives off a texture. And there is a pattern of randomness on the whole of the peice of art."
"The thing that really caught my attetion was the size and the fact that yes the person up there was real and moving and yes it was the artist."
"I am Proud owner of the 2x2 drip painting the original part of the easel. I bought this piece while you were dismantling the easel in grand rapids. I hope you remembers me!!"
"I received my painting. Its beautiful drip art! love it so much thank you mr. caution!"
"I am from Grand Rapids Michigan. I saw you almost everyday on my way to the office standing on that easel during the Artprize, Crazy!! I had to buy a piece of that easel. Paintings got few holes in the wooden panel these must be the nails but I love it. Everytime i look at it it reminds me of you standing up there :) Thank you!"
