San Rafael, CA
In the first glance one of the main characteristics of the paintings I do is the spontaneity in the way forms, shapes and characters are drawn with control over the colors and the placement of shapes. Using different techniques, I can deliver a wide range of subjects and tackle a range of issues. At first, my paintings can be seen as abstract expressionist work since often, the message in a painting may not be immediately obvious, however upon closer examination, one can see a vast and interesting view of emotional, political and social issues. I use simple forms and characters that I have developed throughout my many years of painting. I have developed my style in solitude and away from the mainstream artist community. I believe I have developed a very personal and unique style with simple, but powerful lines and vibrant colors that can attract the eye in the first glance and then deliver a message which is much deeper once I have one’s attention.
