Acrylic on Wood
My work is a visual representation of Graffiti culture. It stems from the long Wildstyle, Funk and New Wave pieces I would see in Northern California to the German 3D movement from Europe. The origins of graffiti culture started illegally, putting up your name where it shouldn't be. I represent that kind of untamed estrangement with walls by cutting out my piece and painting it on a shaped panel where it is free to roam on a wall, instead of painting on a canvas where it feels restrained and contained. My moniker is made up of 7 letters, each with their own distinct personalities. Some of them are wound up tight ready to slash and inflict pain, while others are standoffish with parts that are long and sharp to keep you at bay. My letters push and shove each other like brothers but stand together like comrades when it's time to destroy the enemy.
