I’ve always been drawn to high-intensity messages and colors in my paintings. Solid strokes and shapes dance and flirt to translate themselves into pop-culture, social and political messages. When those elements melt in my paintings it results in high impact aesthetics that keep the viewer’s attention and brings them into the space and time of each of my paintings. Faces, bodies, characters fuse harmonically in their perception, playing with our senses and effectively constructing surreal worlds where we can all meet and play regardless of backgrounds and social status. I give the viewer the opportunity to find and reshape the spaces where they find themselves. My paintings are extensions of myself, I’m the director and my brushes and colors are the orchestra.
