Boston University, 2000
Currently, I paint at Fourth Street Studio and helped set up the gallery. In 2012, I had my first show in Miami as well as a touring show called the Peace Project with the Whole Nine travelling to eight cities: Dallas, Chelsea, Culver Ctiy, Beverly Hills, Long Beach, Santa Ana, Malibu and Oakland. I posted my first painting video on youtube. Last year, I painted my first commission work "I'm CEO... Bitch!" about Facebook as well as selling my first work above $1000, then $1650. In 2010, I sold ten paintings over eBay after starting in 2009. In 2009, I sold 14 paintings on eBay.
My influences come from various travel experiences. I lived all over Europe for six years. I saw Communist artwork behind the Iron Curtain with Surrealist theatre painting in Poland, studied in el Prado and Spanish University for a year. Additionally, I studied Hispanic Islamic art on the ground in Spain. You can see my strong preference of black colors as well as graphic stylizing.
