Artist Statement

Sometimes political, often controversial, always bold and colorful, my work explores classic themes with a modern sense.  Recently branded a “Political Pop Artist”, I am greatly inspired by artists such as Keith Herring and Andy Warhol, as well as music and the street art I grew up around in Chicago.  My work often draws from underground culture, and although I use multiple mediums to express my ideas my subject matter is consistent.  Themes of Freedom, Nature, Sexuality and Spirituality dominate my work.

I am from a working class family and that is who I focus on making art for. I do  not want to create “High Art”, I want to make art that is accessible to people, art that extends past museums and galleries. I intend to create art that has purpose and that creates discussion, whether you walk by on the street or hang it in your living room. It is who I am, I am aworkingclassartist.
