My style of art developed from seeing graffiti as a little kid in NYC, and then not long after we moved to DC, when I would take the Metro I would see all the walls that were painted on the Redline. The colors and motion of the art while riding a train fascinated me. After having an amazing art history teacher in college, I also fell in love with the Baroque and Impressionist movements. I try to capture those styles together with a mix of 70s rock and roll posters. I have done a lot of work in DC with Tom Pipkin and Ian Callendar for Blind Whino. I painted multiple murals for the ultra-popular Pop Up bar in DC’s Shaw neighborhood, including the Game of Thrones and Cherry Blossom Bars. I did all the new murals for the interior of 3 Stars Brewing Company and had the honor of assisting in the restoration of the infamous Marilyn Monroe mural on Calvert St in Woodley Park. Most recently I started a volunteer mural program in Baltimore where we offer businesses paintings for free and have the neighborhood kids get involved — we show them how to paint and beautify places that are neglected and need some color and love. For this year’s Cherry Blossom public art exhibition, I got to paint two of the 3D blossom sculptures. One was displayed at downtown’s CityCenter and the other at Turkey Thicket Recreation Center in DC’s Brookland neighborhood.
