Platte College, 1994, Graphic Design
This series of Art began in 2000 as a collection of black and white faces on stickers, stencils, and large photocopied posters. The style is often referred to as Street-Art. They were applied in various urban locations around the Los Angeles area onto electrical utility boxes, bus benches, construction site scaffolds, etc.
Many viewers of my work would ask/ponder "who is this?" or "what does it mean?"
These questions were left unanswered and mysterious for a number of years.
Then, a time came to utilize the faces in a gallery format as traditional paintings. This is where experience in printing and graphic design came in. The technique I implement is similar to screen printing (without the screen). It involves several layers to complete a final piece. With this process, multiple copies can be generated with one composition.
Though I have moved from street display onto a more traditional setting, I would not have been able to produce this collection without my early days of street art.
