A little bit about me.
I can't think of a time where I wasn't thinking about making something or expressing myself in some creative way.
Influenced by '80s counter-culture I was shaped by greats like Benny Hill, Wacky Packages, Garbage Pail Kids, Mad Magazine, National Lampoon, and beyond.
By the time I was a teenager, I was expressing that innate desire to create through various artistic genres any way I could like Hip Hop and Punkrock which all worked cohesively.
I believe this natural creative instinct was provoked by experiences that would be rejected because a lot of what has fanned the flames to this what seems to be a coping mechanism at times, is a life that is somewhat incomprehensible.
Life experience and circumstances are the very things that have bound me to art, because, through art, I am able to manifest the deep things that dwell intrinsically and illustrate the madness of this world.
This journey continues to be a fountain by which I draw a wealth of inspiration. I occasionally wonder what my art would be like if I didn't have a whirlwind of a past, or would I even be an artist, even though having such a life isn't a prerequisite to being a great artist, or is it? but, it definitely does have a substantial impact. It all depends I suppose.
There is so much to say that I don't even know where to begin, I have often been told to write a book because my story is unfathomable and worthy to be written.
It is a tragic biography of gypsies, tramps, and thieves. Until then, I remain diligent in growing as an artist so that I can draw and paint subject matter that does more than just decorate a wall.
A little bit about my past.
I came into this world during the '70s, a time where there was an interesting culture transition taking place and it was as if the stork of misfortune dropped me smack dab in the middle of the land of fruits and nuts, where the majority of people had a screw loose.
My father died before I was born, raised by my bipolar mother, the door to an undulating and bizarre world was flung open, and it was filled to the brim with characters from all walks of life.
Instability played a role in my creativity because I was lonely on so many levels, ingenuity and tenacity were augmented as I found ways to cope with an undulating macrocosm, a world where I had to build spiritual and mental fortitude's to withstand the barrage of attacks on my psyche.
In 1994 I was attending Otis College of Art and Design when I became ill, after what seemed like ages, I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, but in my case, attacked my entire body, and has given me the gift of chronic pain ever since.
Along with everything else that has shaped my creativity, pain is one of those paradoxical happenings that keep my art consciously driven and in the fight. After withdrawing from Otis, I went back to being an autodidact, studying the "Masters" on my own, learning their lives, searching for things that I could relate to, and absorb the most interesting facets of their creativity while being whatever I am at any stage of my metamorphoses.
These are but a few things that ignited my desire to create and keep the flame of creation burning.
It is self-evident that we have reached an apex of history, an absolutely phenomenal time to be engaged as an artist, where we have the golden opportunity to send light into the darkness of men's hearts and start them on the path to a resurrection of the mind.
The masses have long been conditioned and controlled by the scientific stratagems of a nefarious force of a globalist consortium who have done everything in their power to enslave the heart of man and keep him chained to an illusion. It's time to break free, and as an artist, I am doing everything in my power to have a relevant voice, not only for myself but for those who are too afraid or brainwashed to do anything.
I observe through an equitable frame of view by expanding my scope while breaking down the walls of a skewed perspective. One of the things that I often ponder on is a word of warning to Israel in the Old Testament - "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge", regardless of your persuasion, this warning carries with it absolute truth.
Without properly examining all the relevant evidence, the psychological certainty you arrive at will be the very thing that shapes your frame of reference for the world in which you dwell.
The world is literally melting down, from the collective consciousness of man to the earth itself, it's all falling apart and if we can't fix this ongoing existential threat, we can at least utilize our gifts to break these bonds, even if it means that we perish in the fight, but at least we know that we did all we could do.
I am constantly keeping my mind open, exercising true faith, which is an action based upon a belief sustained by confidence, not mere mental assent, but action, transcending these finite limitations and battling the false paradigm.
I've never been keen on appellations, however, if I were to give a definitive description of my work, I would say consciously driven, culture jamming, counter-culture, anti-art, coma-free, politically subversive eschatological illustrations.
What my work is about
With Lazer like focus, I create imagery that focuses on and exposes the evil and corruption in the multidimensional universe we dwell. It is an all-encompassing manifestation of both the celestial and terrestrial reality that many are oblivious to.
With a strong emphasis on geopolitical and eschatological issues, I intricately interweave relative, current people, places, and things that play a major role in our daily lives, from the globalist consortium and the perpetual manufactured false paradigm, nefarious theocratic organizations and the cosmic rulers that enslave us.
How I make my work
My compositions are the result of spontaneous and methodical execution. I utilize a combination of current and historical references through an abundance of research, i.e., literature, photographs, etc. I use a vast array of media in my work, both wet and dry, and over the years have formed my own amalgamation of mediums for my work.
How I want my audience to respond to my work
I gave up on mankind a long time ago.
When I'm not wrapped up in a piece of artwork I like to explore the city and immerse myself in the spatial consciousness between graffiti art and urban landscapes.
Through a process of post-production, I turn my captured images into aesthetically provocative photographs.
I have great respect and admiration for Graffiti Artists and the work they produce and there is something about graffiti art and the city combined that I find euphoric and love to chronicle and immortalize those rare finds.
In a world where the masses have fallen prey to social engineering stratagems and corporate trickery, it is imperative that one is diligent and relentless in the quest for truth remaining coma-free to the diabolical blueprints and nefarious plots that keep us divided and entrenched in confusion.
Art is a powerful means by which we can share, chronicle, and communicate those relevant things that have a profound effect.
