In Your Face Art
Influenced by the genre-bending styles of Pop Surrealism and the Low Brow art movement, my work blends elements from pop culture, symbolic icons of religion and war, and modern fears of the American lifestyle. In addition to mixing concepts and imagery, my work mixes classical oil painting techniques with a wide variety of media: stencils and spray-paint, drawing, acrylic paint and found objects. As a thrift-store-loving child of the 80s, I often incorporate vintage finds in surprising ways, such as creating the backgrounds of many paintings by using lace tablecloths as stencils for spray-paint.
My audience has grown through gallery shows, a growing international audience for my prints online, and as stickers on the street. Join my debauched brain in this artistic journey, where the only rule is “don’t take life to seriously or you’ll never get out alive.”
