ARTIST STATEMENT

My current work is an excavation of the inheritance of the past which reveals the undercurrents of cosmology and personal perception by alluding to tropes of the urban environment via the incredible act of mark-making on canvas with vivid acrylic color --similar to street art. I frame every piece in an unremarkable pure white frame to emphasize each expression.

Be the king or queen of your own castle. Feel it, think on how to make it happen, work towards it, then experience it -- water, fire, air and earth respectively. North, south, east and west are relative to your location. You can't touch what you can't see.


The best way for me to express the meaning behind a piece is with a poem. Shop


East bound

Moving on your left

Sending water in a ball of flames

Up north, from back south


Moving so fast I made my wig fly back

Like, Roman judges and hood chicks

We landed in the west

Definition of united


United, united!

Flip the crown

Let the nile -flow!

Similac got me on go!


His and hers robes

Contemporary and ancient regalia

Captain America, Titanic, Titans -regal, ya!

Solid in the paint

Set foundations in all directions


United, united!

Wind blowing to the North

Eastern anchor, like a cable

Keep the connections till we dock on shore


No ship wrecking!

We big stepping!
