About the artist
Art is an uncontrollable passion and obsession. After many travels around the United States for such things as skateboarding and graffiti art, I found a home in San Francisco in 1997, and among other things, a great community to exist in and make art. The past nine years have brought me the development of a repertoire of iconic images. Through murals, paintings, installations, and drawings, I have used these images to tell stories about everyday life in America, filtering political commentary through the forms of graffiti art and underground comics, fused with clipart from the early 1900′s and medieval renderings that chart the history of man and nature. The relationship between man and nature has been a re-occurring theme in my work, and also the effects of globalism and capitalism on the world. Although heavily interested in showing work and doing large multi-media installations in the gallery and museum setting, I have spent a tremendous amount of time doing murals and various work in the streets of America and abroad. I have an intense interest in painting large-scale imagery on walls in the public space, that address and inform the very diverse audience of the general public, including children, about current social and political issues (Marx&Zavattero).
