Collectors have fun interpreting the meaning of my paintings. I definitely wouldn't say they get bored because when they see my paintings later, a second time, they will interpret a completely different meaning.
I start to paint from realistic ideas first, then I disentangle. My mind is stuck on the realistic picture, as I disentangle, I begin to experience the Raw Emotion left behind.
I grew up watching Shadow Plays as a kid. I thought Shadow Plays were the best kind of entertainment ever! I enjoyed it so much because it was light and funny. There would be characters that imitated people in my village, people I knew.
'How can I give other people a chance to experience this?' So I use vibrant colors that make you feel excitement or the shadow of the night. This kind of impact is what I want to showcase in this Collection of Paintings.
When I worked in the movie industry we would make set props. I've sculpted severed heads, castles, and elephants; some of these sets were massive. That is why my paintings are inspired by celebrities and pop-culture.
I feel like Sign Language works well with my style of Artwork. I'm interested in Sign Language because this kind of communication has no boundaries; especially in visual arts like my paintings.
