Artist statement

´╗┐Public art beautifies the community along with the spaces we occupy and inhabit every day. I believe that art should be accessible to all. In my teens I began painting graffiti on abandoned buildings and walls. This opened my mind to the ideas of scale and design, and the ideology behind public art. Later working as graphic designer my interest in graffiti expanded to include typography and design. Now, locally known as EMO for painting large-scale murals utilizing brushes & rollers, paint sprayers and spray paint techniques, this passion developed into a blend of raw urban art and graphic design that has become my signature style. In the past few years I have been experimenting with combining my painting with three-dimensional art.
