VJLZ Lab.

Art is a spectacle, and it should definitively and dramatically catch the eye.  It is, after all, something that is to be viewed, something that is created to evoke pure emotion through the visual experience. The bolder the better. Shocking and beautiful. Interactive reaction. Layers of subjective, subconscious, poetic meaning. The jarring of the soul out of a societal, monotonous hypnosis.  To provoke a new spark of thought, or to stimulate an intense feeling is the ultimate goal. There is so much more to the depths of life, the universe and consciousness than we usually think about on a day to day basis. Look deeper. Live more fully. Grasp the subtle meaning before it haunts your dreams...  The enjoyment and energy that I receive from producing my work has to do with the mixed media technique of layering acrylic paint with collage, uv-responsive texture, and 3-dimensional, very tactile components.  I am a self-taught artist that started on the street; my mentors are breakdancer, import tuner, and graffiti writer friends that spray paint under bridges.  I grew up dancing to drum&bass/electro and going to amazing late night surreal parties.  Also I am a professional Interior Designer.  Because of this divergent influence and inspiration, my aesthetic is a blend of urban psychedelic street-style flair mixed with all kinds of textures that respond to day, uv, darkness and reflection.  Whereas most art is untouchable, I want you to to be pulled into the multi-sensory experience of my work so much that it momentarily transports you, pulls you into another dimension...
