Are you formally trained or is this a natural talent?
I went to art school but I don’t consider myself formally trained. When I was about 7 years old I figured out that I like to draw. I would pick up comic books or video games covers and practice drawing. After high school, I went to Washington University in St. Louis. It was a real good school and art program where I learned a lot about drawing during the 2 years I was there. I ended up finishing art school at U of H.
Describe your work and style…
I really enjoy capturing city scenery and landscapes. I like doing images that capture what is currently going on in America. My work is about work ethic and the idea of hope. I have been focusing a lot on construction and the numerous jobs it brings into this economy. There are people who complain how there aren’t any jobs out there and there are people who are willing to do odd jobs like construction. I want to put the idea of “hope” back into those individuals who are doing their best to make a living.
Do you have any artistic inspirations?
It’s not so much artist work that I look at specifically. I’m inspired by artist who consistently worked and had a lot of art; artists like Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, and Rauschenberg. I like Picasso mainly because he tried doing a lot of things. He had a lot of ideas. I can appreciate art where you can tell took a lot of effort to make.
What else are you working on?
I just try to get myself involved in as many things that I can. I’m just trying to do as much as I can and make a name for myself, therefore eventually people will ask me to be a part of shows.
You recently auditioned for “work of art: season 2”, how was that?
I went to the first round and was interviewed by a few people who really liked my work so I got a call back to go back the next day. Then I some casting producers looked at my work, they liked what I had but unfortunately it wasn’t what they were looking for.
After sitting with Raul, I came away with a greater appreciation for artist and those who are willing to do whatever it takes to make it. I respect that mind set. It’s the only way to live.
