My individual realist style varies between paintings and drawing, The drawings juxstapose stark black and white graphite images on paper, while the paintings use opulent acrylics on canvas. My somewhat oversized canvases transport the viewer to rambunctious inner-city settings, where counter-culture characters wearing street inspired dress, and relfecting an abrasive, yet nonchalant attitude, agressively confront and engage with the audience. Abandoned brick buildings adorned with colorful graffiti messages and imagery, evoke the underground intrigue and dangers of revolutionary artistic critiques of culture. My graffiti imagery is not only meant as mere adornment to enhance the hardcore atmosphere of the inner city compositions, but also as symbolic codes and challeges to the overbearing powerstructure and the politically correct world in which we live. In my new “Forgotten Faces” series, I want to remind the viewer of those whom our society has forgotten, particularly, the coutless homeless veterans. Additionally my most recent works focus on military images as well as Conservative social commentary designed to engage the viewer, and hopefully prompt them to think as well as to enjoy the artistic merit of the composition.
