"My work explores the relationship between the animal kingdom and mystical tribalism. With influences of Haring and indigenous latin art, my characters are reminiscent of the demigods and mythical animal hybrids of lore in countless cultures of antiquity in a modern expression.
Ever since I was a child, I became enthralled by beastial imagery and religious iconography. What started as mere doodling became a spiritual transmission of discovery and transmutation.
As a society we are continually oscillating between the ephemeral self and the collective whole, it is here where the viewer is transformed into a multitude of alternate realities, pushing the boundaries of identity. "
