“I’m a multimedia artist from Long Island, New York. I recently started sculpting again, and participated in a group exhibit at the Grady Alexis gallery in Manhattan, New York. The proceeds from the art sold is used to support immigrants. It was a very exciting and the experience I had during he exhibit was thrilling.
Most times my inspiration comes from my surroundings, or things I do when I’m not working on a project or the next. Lately I find reading to be more helpful, as it helps me with titles of my work but the idea for the work is always from an image or video and sometimes a movie. In the past I has limited resources to seek inspiration for a project, now it’s a little bit easier for me because of the change in technology which is like a library for me to do my research.” From a 2017 Interview here.
This piece was from our 2019 exhibition, Measured Hate.
