I am 26, living in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. My studio is in Manhattan. I have wonderful assistants who help me with a lot of my work. I have very big ideas for where my artwork is headed, as many of us do have. Those ideas for me are related to healing, enlightenment, and large groups of people coming together to reach higher levels of communication, and cooperation. This is just the idea perhaps, but it is what has been fueling most of my work. In reality, I have accumulated a vast number of notably lively and inspiring works of art. These can be seen at my studio upon visiting, and have been selling, and are for sale. Now I have turned my attention to a significantly larger scale: 10 foot drawings, murals, and full-gallery installations. As I get more committed to what I do, the work is getting more attention, and becoming further developed. Stepping into the unknown.
My recent work appears to be about creation and self-realization, although I do not plan for it to be this way. Humor is the key ingredient. Animal characters appear with halos, in deep thought, and fish are born out of wood. I have visions of hundreds of these hanging at once, which is an extended version of the way my studio walls are sometimes. Giant beasts, tiny birds, and many round, richly colored mandalas. Putting the audience at the center of creation: another one of my big ideas is to create a feeling in the audience as being the creator. I find art therapy very important, and full of potential.
My art has over the years become less esoteric, and more easily accessible by the masses, which is definitely what I want. Years ago I was making art which I thought was right. It was a painful study of art history and contemporary art, and it was competitive and in my retrospective opinion, meaningless. Simultaneously, it was all perfect for my development.
For now I wish to experiment with shows and the installations I have in mind. I am very open, and not trying so hard to push in a particular direction. I have an interest in working with animators, and somehow integrating my work into films. Read Less
