I'm inspired to communicate
challenging ideas through use of color and imagery. One day, I'll be known as the world's most perceptive & proficient visual communicator. Until then, I am an artist and visual creator.
Most of my process & work can be viewed on instagram*, but here are some recent projects:
For the reception area in the W Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I created a scenery that is essentially the spirit of Florida: relaxation & summer 365 days a year. I painted 8 large surfboards in one collection that is hung above the reception table and greet guests as they walk in with a burst of energy.
To illustrate love in its purest, most naive form is a hard task. I was asked to express this for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, in which was displayed across all 40 screens in TimeSquare.
Human emotions are often the most challenging concepts to depict, especially one as complex as love. I often come back to recreate the evolution of love as I experience such myself.
Volleyball Court - US Women's Volleyball
Adidas x US Women's Volleyball Championship asked me to reskin their entire court to create a space of energy, celebration, and power of teamwork for the US Women's championship in Florida.
A response to the political climate in 2016, I created a mural with an accompanying art show to discuss the divide in all social aspects in our country, made especially apparent during this time.
All sales from the event went to an organization of the cause the artwork was created for.
My first solo show is a homage to good old Windows 95 days and all that has transpired since, celebrating the root of my career as an artist by painting my digital beginning, along with remixed nostalgia of screensavers and GIFs.
The underlying power of any visual language is communicating a message without telling explicitly how a viewer should feel. That is what iconography is; what is the concept of 'security'? If it's a lock, does it provoke secrecy or safety? For OKCupid, I created various icons to express various concepts, from topics as broad as safety to more nuisanced, such as threesomes.
