I am...
I was born and raised in and live in New York City. A child of the 80s, roaming the streets, influenced by chaos. In 1989 I picked a tag and followed the graffiti lifestyle through for 17 years. This obsessive art form led me to pursue an education in fine art and art history. Studying anatomy during the day and climbing buildings at night, I led a double life. There was no connection, leaving me unsatisfied and searching for a way to reconcile the two. Uninterested in pursuing one genre of art, I started integrating seemingly inconsistent styles creating hybrids and crossbreeding.
About my artwork
Life is short. Here today, gone tomorrow. Change and Death are definite. I remind myself of these realities before I start working everyday. Understanding and accepting these truths about life help me let go of my inhibitions. My work is about life, death, struggle, and the release of awkward emotion
Artists I like
HANS BELLMER, UNIKA ZURN, MATHEW BRENNAN, MAX ERNST,
