Description

This is the original painting. It hides behind the door of our guest bedroom facing the bed, so that when guests at our house close the door for a night of slumber, they find Chuck Norris watching over them.

Who wouldn't want a barechested Chuck Norris watching over you? The title is particularly well suited, as Arete is a greek word meaning superior.

If you're not familiar with Brandon Bird, check out his website at brandonbird.com. He's done a lot of gallery shows and comics themed work, along with a lot of work for McSweeney's.

This painting was featured in a Newsweek article you can read here:

Whoa! I just noticed the Brandon Bird pieces in your collection. Are these the original paintings? A buddy got me the print of "Two Warriors Come Out of the Sky" as a gift a few years ago. It hangs in my office at work. Brandon's pop culture pieces are truely inspired.

This piece secures your place as irrefutable god-king of CAF! I tremble in terrible awe! I don't know if it's better sleeping with Chuck Norris in full view, or just knowing that he can see you even if you can't see him.

Wow. This Chuck painting is allowing all the other art on CAF to hang around. If this Chuck painting told all the other art to scram I guess that would be game over for CAF. That's one Mighty painting! ;-)
