My paintings investigate the frontiers of imagination though the use of the language of myths and symbols. The style blends together elements of pulp illustration, portraiture, graffiti, tattoo art and comics. I use a series of cinematographic images and character portraits as hints of a secret story. I want the viewer to construct the narrative setting and to try to decipher the riddle. I often start the painting with gesso white ground to smooth the surface or add texture and mix in the painting emblems and tags with acrylic markers, conveying a loose contemporary style that dance with graffiti and sticker art.
