About the artist:

«The work is an embracement of my inner madness manifested in reality. It is executed with a strong sense of urgency. I do not create out of choice, I create out of obligation. In simpler terms, the art chose me. I am a strong believer in the notion that art imitates life and vice versa. My work reflects on modern American nostalgia (but not limited to America only) clashing with my functional hoarding of three dimensional materials such as newspapers, magazines, and my beloved collection of tattered American flags compiled from my travels through the southwest. I enhance the work with an array of foreign art materials such as gasoline, beer, fireworks, and flame. Inspiration is a constant trance that surrounds my being. Overwhelming yet liberating, inspiration is something that I live firsthand; therefore, it is what I am. My world is processed by color, which are the most fascinating entities of life, and the paintings exist in a world of their own. What’s exciting about the abstract process is that I am creating something that does not previously exist in the world and not only giving it life, but giving it purpose. The purpose of the work is to tell a story. Although I create these works with a story in my heart that represents an experience held significant to my being, it is the viewers job to create a story significant to theirs. It takes immense discipline to allow my paintings to have a mind of their own.»
