Give us some info on your artistic background
I am a visionary artist who utilizes a vast range of mediums to create mind boggling art that will make you think twice about how you see the world. I strive to be a modern day renaissance man with revolutionary work that pushes the possibilities for consciousness exploration within contemporary art.
I make artwork that spans a variety of forms including photography, film making, web-art, collage painting, digital art, animation, video-art, and sound design. My artwork fuses together aspects of mysticism, surrealism, psychedelia and the technological resulting in sublime juxtapositions that can totally bend one’s perception.
What do you want people to take away from your art?
Through my artwork I aim to offer the viewer a new way of seeing the world, to describe life as magical, and rich with wonder, mystery and possibility.
There seems to be a number of spiritual and/or psychedelic themes within your artwork. Can you tell us about these ideas and their importance to you?
My artwork is very inspired by higher states of consciousness and experiences with psychedelics. I make artwork that captures these transcendent moments and brings them into our world in the form of art that anyone can enjoy.
