Statement

My work deals with the dualities, polar opposites,and contradictions of the mind, body,spirit,, and art itself, with attempts to reconcile these differences into a state of personal balance and harmony.

 

These dualities are mainly  visible in the two types of art that I make: those being the STREET ART and the STUDIO ART and the subplot that they carry. These two different and opposite ways of making art complement each other and what one lacks, is contained in the other. They   are both  integral to my full expression

 

My STREET ART, made of thousands of  drawn chalk faces on the streets of New York City, and that sometimes cover up to 10 city blocks, is simple,cartoon like, ephemeral, confrontational, large in scope, interactive, repetitive, and with a performance art quality to it that demands endurance of body and mind.

 

My STUDIO ART, consisting of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints, is on the other hand complex, sophisticated, rarely gets to be seen, it is small, detailed, intricate, colorful, biographical, personal, and permanent. In it, I get to fully express my inner emotions that deal with relationships, sexuality, love, hate, community, family, ancestry, religion, and psychology, among many other subjects and imagery that are constantly being incorporated as part of my evolution. The common thread of all the work is hope and optimism in the face of life’s struggles.
