I strive to recreate mechanical works while allowing the artist’s hand to have a strong influence. Pop culture and original sketches form the basis for a majority of my paintings. Punk, hip hop and skateboarding are all huge influences. I prefer complementary, synthetic colors and intense lines. I love it when a piece strikes the balance between a childhood memory and my contemporary, personal twist. The mood I aim for is somewhere between modern and nostalgic.
