Painting

My work focuses on architecture, its role in nature, and man’s struggle for a perfect world. I have always been drawn to logos, and my work harnesses my own graphic interpretation of places I’ve visited or seen. Simplifying landscapes allows me to take a place that you may be familiar with and evoke a forgotten or unknown feeling. Motivation comes from an inner desire to create my perfect world, full of vibrant colors and solid structure.

I start with a hand drawing, then I use illustration software to create my renderings; finally I make a stencil used to create the final acrylic painting. I apply the acrylic paint using rollers and brushes to achieve different textures.
