Social media has never been more prominent in our lives than today. Our culture tends to be driven by phone apps that are easily accessible with the tap of a finger and the whole world is literally at our fingertips. We as a society are swayed by the images, music and videos that are embedded into our minds, thoughts, and behavior on a daily basis. I like to bring those social influences to life through my art.
As a Los Angeles native, for years I have enjoyed watching sports, listening to hip hop music, exploring different fashion trends, and indulged in movies and films. I've experimented with all types of mediums including pencil, colored pencils, pen, marker, pastels, and watercolor. I've practiced on paper, cardboard, wood, glass, and fabrics. But my most preferred medium is acrylic or oil paint on canvas. My style can be described as a mild distortion between reality and animation. Some may say it has a "pop art" appearance. I like contrasting, opaque colors with clean lines that will give the viewer a solid and aesthetically pleasing visual.
