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.

A dog fears wolves. A cat fears lions. Everything is connected. Accept that part of you is wild. Be fearless. Then, move on.

Accept it all

That's how the world revolve

Lions disguised as lambs roam the halls

Till they time is called


Build a ladder and climb up

Get shined up


KNOW


If you see them up

It's because they been down


That's were we built the:

Bullet proof

Bubble eye Lex

The impenetrable fortress

The head rest


That's why we never fold

We stay in touch with every shrine

Sublime


Never stressing

Here to be a blessing

A rewind

A remind


To the dogs and the cats resting

It's time to roar at the sun

And howl at the moon

Keep it real

And stay tuned

XOXO The love and loyalty ex's have for o's and visa versa is the greatest story ever told. It is the story of life. The story of being physical and not physical simultaneously. It is an amazing love story of unity and division, multiplication and subtraction --life.

Before you wake, X


You start to blink

Ooh o ooh, HELLO

Retro-spec

No dos in my affect

There is a source of power, a force generator that takes the shape of female reproduction parts and or the eye of every being. The movement of source ensures that life never ends. Let us all keep twerking.

Left cheek, right cheek

Drop it low and then swing

All the power's up in this thang


Make the world STOP

Whole body tic toc


Dropping babies

Can't stop, won't stop


Apple of my daddy's eye


Oh, wait, I'm my daddy

Rip Rip


Rotate that thang

Make em' come to you

Drip Drip

I am money

Shaking the money maker


It's all for you daddy

Do whatever you want to do!


I in eye

Truth in true
