About the Art:
His art is the synthesis of his love for typography and an ability to simplify complex visual ideas with raw emotional marks on paper.
He puts his whole body into my paint strokes, letting the motion/action dictate the composition. Then by removing the medium with different degrees of force, he reveals what has always been there, as a sculptor does with stone.
The spontaneous blending and removal of paint create an abstract composition of color and texture. The texture is the residue of paint that will not be washed away, like the underlying wisdom and strength we all possess – our authentic self.
