“Smile, you son of a Bitch!”

3 11 2013

My first experience in the monster art scene of LA was a success. Of all the themes’s in the world, it happened to be about my all time favorite movie. A movie that left such a dramatic impact on every single person, even to this day still keeps people out of the water.  JAWS has been my inspiration ever since i was little. It’s the root to my body of work. It’s the main reason why I paint sharks. To be apart of an event like this meant the world me. A once in a life time opportunity. Loaded with professional artists from all over the world, I knew I had to put forth strong work. I made the best of it and gave the LA scene something to hopefully remember…my name. Hero Complex Gallery and PangeaSeed came together and really put on an unforgetable event. From JAWS movie props, puppets and of course the artwork, it was an amazing atmosphere that kept a huge crowd entertained from start to finish. I’m honored and forever gratful to have been apart of such great event. Can’t wait to work with HCG on future shows. Check out the links below to see more of the behind the scenes from the “Smile, you son of a Bitch!” art event.

This scene in the movie is one of my favorites. The whole ‘Mano a Mano’, ‘Do or Die’, ‘Kill or be killed’ type attitude makes this particular scene my favorite. Here is my piece, “This shark, swallow you whole” I did for the event.

“Proceed with Caution” solo exhibition **coming soon***

24 06 2013

72 dpi

For my first solo exhibition, “Proceed with Caution”, I left nothing behind. The body of work that will be on display, is a creative mix of what i’m about. Bright colors, Marine Life and my favorite childhood Nightmare Creatures. I paint these images using various styles, color combos, balance and lighting. My styles range from Urban Abstract, Surrealism and Photo-realism. I use a wide range of mediums to execute each piece such as Aerosols, Acrylic, and more. I find my inspiriation through life in our oceans, natural colors, lighting, and what I see in my dreams. Constantly creating between reality and imagination. Ive dedicated the last six months prepping for this event. I put in countless hours and energy into each and every piece. Art to me, keeps the mind and spirit alive. I live for this shit…
