About the piece
Throughout time, there has been individuality. Throughout time, there have been individuals that stand out among the crowd for their ideas, for their actions, for their achievements… Yet, over time, the memorized image of these individuals begins to fade.
About the artist
Over the last 25 years of my life, I have been injected into art courses on a non-stop basis to bring me to the point I am at today. It has been rough, considering I have learned techniques for over 10 different types of artwork, at minimum. Though, throughout this journey, which involved a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and a nearly completed Bachelor’s in Studio Arts, it has kept me thinking solely about art and how I can create my own style to not fit into the market, but stand out from it. So, now, years later, I am a successful artist in the field of acrylic painting, with over 160 sales just in 2016 to clients all over the United States and Japan.
All while maintaining a contemporary art gallery back in Wichita, Kansas, in order to exude the mantra that art feeds the soul and everyone has the opportunity to share this vision with the world, they just need a stage to do so. So, with accepting new artists from all over the country, month after month, I began learning more and more into, “what is art?” and how can I stand out? That is when my style took off and I found the perfect mixture of my digital techniques along with traditional application and painting to create the current series, “Fading Identities,” “White Space Designs” and “Psychedelic Inspirations.” Through these series, you will see the optimization of utilizing digital media alongside traditional, in order to create paintings that not only stick out crisply like a graphic online, but also have depth and character of letting the paint determine how the final piece will be optically felt by the viewer.
