I am interested in creating images, whether visually conceived or interpreted. Images that are relevant; creating LIVING NOSTALGIA. Using POP CULTURE as a vehicle of conversation, ELEVATION, and art. We elevate ourselves through this art to become LIBERATED HYPER-HUMANS, (higher versions of what we conceive ourselves to be). LIMITLESS. RE-INVENTION is our freedom. I want to be an ICON, I want my subjects, ideas and stories to become ICONIC. This is the MISSION.
“Poor is the man, whose pleasures depend, on the permission of another”
