I am a New York artist now based in San Diego, California, who, through my work, seeks to utilize various harmonies and ideas to visually engage the audience. I also use my art as an opportunity to experiment with the range of possibilities allowed through my choice of materials, spray paint and hand cut stencils.
My work captures spaces of partial or full illumination between the perfect shadows on all sides of a person or an object. The artwork conveys the real beauty of the subject. The viewer is able to appreciate the simplicity, splendor and exquisiteness of my work and the subject. The work is raw, it’s stripped back, it’s honest.
I am vehemently opposed to using art as a means to rely on overly-complex theories or ideas to prop up mediocre images. I believe that the quality of the actual work is what is paramount.
How It Is Made:
I hand cut the stencils out, no matter how big, with an X-Acto knife. Yes, even the 8ft x 10ft wall murals are all done with the same attention to detail. I then use the stencils to create the pieces you see on this site. Here is a quick time lapse video that shows the way I do this. —> http://youtu.be/5mdz6zwH8HU
