It’s been a while…

6 Nov

Hello, all. I wanted to write a little something to let you know I will be getting around to uploading more art, newer and older, very soon. It has been a while since my last post and for that, I apologize but, want to assure you that even though I have taken a bit of a break from painting to focus on work, (art directing) I will continue to keep the art coming. Thank you for you support and love, always.

“Compendium” series pieces, new works coming soon.

5 Feb

Hello again. Wanted to let you know that I will be uploading as much new art as possible as well as the many works from recent years that I have exhibited. A number of these works were done as collections, if you will. This is in regards to the process and presentation for which I have applied to each series of pieces. One body of works is named, Compendium. I have begun to upload this series with a piece named, Bit Trace and Iactus, (pictured below.) May you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them. Please stay tuned, my friends. Thank you

New exhibition in the works.

15 Jan

Hello friends! I am pleased to announce the first art news of the new year, 2014: I have been approached to exhibit  my art. Though no dates have been set this will be taking place on Abbott Kinney in Venice, CA. Today I have a meeting with the art coordinator of the space and will be able to establish which works of mine will be the best fit and/or if new works will be a part of this exhibition. As a rule to myself I always like to create new work for new exhibitions. We shall see what time and size parameters permits. Please stay tuned and, as always thank you for your support and love. All my best.

Simple post…

22 Oct

Hey there friends! My apologies for being away for a bit. I’ve definitely been busy with new adventures in the film and television industry. I’ve had the opportunity to work some great gigs and meet many new friends, artists and musicians while still being able to utilize my creative side by art directing for these projects. In addition to all this I have been working on my music in preparation for the completion of a few EPs to be followed by a full length album. More on that soon so please stay tuned. In the mean time please take a moment to check out some of my music project, The Yours Revueand let me know what you think. You may also stay in tune and up to date with most of my current art projects, whether it be my art and painting process, my music and the unique album cover designs I create for the release of new songs or, my on set photos of how I make it all work on my instagram page.

 

Hope you all are well and I want to thank you for your continued support, blessing and, love. Cheers!

CAJA Group Show @ 423West Gallery

16 Jul

Hello friends! I’m back to let you know of a new exhibition I’m proud to be a part of. First, a little back story….

Over the past couple of years while showing in the Sea No Evil Art Show I’ve had the opportunity to show along side and meet some incredibly talented and well known artists. I am very thankful for that. Recently I was asked if I wanted to be a part of an upcoming group show to be curated by an artist colleague I have exhibited with at SNE, Christopher Umana. Of course I said yes and was honored to have been sought out for this new show, CAJA to take place 7-27-2013 at 423West Gallery in Los Angeles. Though I have yet to meet Christopher in person his work stands out to me as being very original and inspiring. This show has also given me the chance to be able to occupy wall space with one of my long time friends, fellow artist and, someone who has continued to amaze and inspire me, Jophen Stein.

The piece I have created for this show has proven to be quite a challenge for me which I have no problem admitting. This is due to the fact that my artwork is primarily 2D in it’s presentation-I paint on wood, a flat surface. This has driven me to take my art and place it in a 3D type of situation. So, “Caja” means box in Spanish and for the concept of this piece I wanted to give the impression of seemingly peering out from some sort of box: to put the viewer inside the box looking out. This could be a window, a door or turning and looking back through some grand entrance. I chose a combination of these but mainly focused on the latter. Hopefully you, my friends, family and, artists colleagues can make the opening and share with me your experience of gazing upon my work and out into the universe.

As always, all my best and I hope to see you there!

I promise there are not a gazillion pictures of cats or selfies or margaritas and certainly not my nails. Maybe a couple but it’s mostly about the art and all the different things I create. Have a look, give me a follow and let me know what you think. Thanks.

I Won Montana x 33Third’s #60SprayCanGiveaway !!!

8 Oct

In August, 2012, the online graffiti and art supply store, 33Third.com recently awarded  “Best store for street artists” by LA Weekly — hosted a twitter contest where 60 cans of Montana spray paint would be given away to one lucky winner, chosen at random. The rules were simple: add the #60SprayCanGiveaway to your tweets, purchase Montana products from their online store, and join 33’s mailing list. Simple enough, right? Well, today I received the news that I won! This is such an amazing contest to win given the fact that I use spray paint, in addition to many other types of paint, to create the art you see here on my site. It’s also a great help as we all know that painting and art supplies don’t come cheap.

I am completely overjoyed to have won this contest. Many thanks and much respect to 33Third and Montana for their support and continued encouragement of not just me and my art but of all the artists out there that strive to perfect their craft in all areas. Thanks 33 for really taking care of all us local artists.

SEA NO EVIL 2012

19 Jun

I am pleased to officially announce that I will once again be participating in this year’s annual Sea No Evil Art Show, taking place Saturday June 30th at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium. Last year’s event was such an amazing success for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and was also huge achievement for myself; the two original pieces of artwork I donated to SNE 2011 both sold. This year I will be donating one new piece that is a part of my most recent body of work.

It is truly an honor  to be a part of such a great cause. I am so happy and grateful to be donating to this wonderful show again and to be able to show alongside some really great artists and friends. Please come out and show your support while checking out and, hopefully buying, some great art. All art will be auctioned off with the proceeds going towards keeping our oceans and all that dwells therein safe. See you there!
