Artist Statement:
My event-driven paintings and drawings depict characters and situations in an unrealistic world of bright colors and altered perspectives inspired by a media controlled life in an urban world. My paintings act as an allegory for the intense media manipulation of news and images that bombard my consciousness. The proximity of this information penetrates and informs my world serving as inspiration for my work.
As an artist living in the Bronx, the city is an essential part of my visual lexicon. The characters that I present come from stories of alternate personalities and evolve into different versions of myself, male or female, observing, thinking, and processing my everyday experiences. I often use iconic cartoon imagery of the past originally meant to depict a good American lifestyle and I juxtapose that innocence against the urban grittiness of the present day.
