I am a mixed media painter currently living in Hermosa Beach California.

My paintings are a combinations of post-impressionist oil painting style and motivations, and street art influences. From a young age, hip-hop culture (dj'ing, mc'ing, break dancing, and graffiti writing) inspired me. The passion, color, line usage, design elements, and improvisational style moved me to begin creating art.
 
My goal in recent works has been to incorporate my love of hip-hop elements into my paintings which spring from a post-impressionist approach to oil painting.
