Over 25 Years of Artistic Acrylic on Canvas Painting. The paintings that I produce are a visual documentation of urban life as I know it. My art explore contemporary concerns like poverty, crime, drugs, war, racism, the education system, and notable differences between haves and have not's.
My painting technique is acrylic on textured canvas; I use animated vibrant childlike imagery that is reminiscent of primitive work of both folk art and outsider art. The rough, gritty, primitive, vividly colored paintings are filled with the hustle and bustle of everyday inner-city life. My artwork depicts the raw power of my life, life around me, and at the same time I try to express a since of keeping hope alive.
