ART + ILLUSTRATION
My art is inspired by my daily observations of the world around me. Every piece draws references from all of my experiences, my growing up in a Dominican family as a first generation American, born in Brooklyn, growing up in Jersey, now living in Queens. Everything I create has bits and pieces derived from pop culture, movies, nature, graffiti, antique photographs, vintage advertising, world cultures, tattoos, textiles, textures, wallpapers; pretty much anything.
I am self taught, and have been drawing since I was a small child. In my body of work, I have tried to capture all of the small details, bright colors, shapes, and lines found in my every day life.
My hope is that this body of work enables the viewer to stop and “smell the roses” so to speak and take notice of all of the details and colors surrounding their everyday lives.
