Artist Statment

My work explores my personal experiences, while correlating ideas between culture and subculture.

Touching on social, historical, and individual experiences, my goal is to engage the viewer through mundane subjects and satirical themes. While using a crude aethetic to merge ideas of race, landscape, and Americana, my work creates a mythological narrative that explores a black perspective from my many years growing up in suburbia painting graffiti. My objective is not to always equate my experiences with the seriousness of my subject matter, but to instead use a common language to examine our society's perceptions.
