Three things that inspire you right now.

 

Flea markets, Dwight Yoakam, and my girlfriend, Kristen Liu-Wong.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Describe your latest artistic project. 
I work on a lot of things at once, but today I’m working on a stack of drawings, a new painting, a collaborative painting with Kristen, and a song. As far as art shows go, I’ll be having a small solo show in New Image Art’s project room and curating a show in their main room. The shows will open on the same night sometime in February.

 

 

 


How did you get to your current style?And how do you define it today?

 

I just kept working and I got better. I don’t really worry about defining what I do. I work in a lot of different mediums and my style changes every time.

 

 

 

 

 

What kind of subjects do you love to represent and what stories you love tell?

 

I paint a lot of animals and use a lot of imagery from classic American graphics. I write in first person most of the time. I usually tell my own story or the stories of the people I know. I was born in Florida. I grew up in North Carolina. I lived in Chicago for a while. And now I’m living in Los Angeles. I make a lot of art about the places I live and my experiences in them.

 

 

 

Los Angeles, is it inspiring for your art, why?

 

For sure! I love this place. It was inspiring for me before I ever even came here. So much great art, music, and movies have been made here. There’s creativity in the air out here.

 

 

 

 

Briefly explain your artistic process.

 

I bounce around the appartment all day. Working in heaps of different mediums. I usually work from when I wake up until I go to bed. I like a ton of variety in my days. So I don’t mind stopping in the middle of painting and moving to carpentry and on to writing songs.

 

 

 

What techniques and mediums do you use? 

 

I paint, sculpt, play guitar, bass, precision, write orchestral arrangements, record with Logic, graphic design, TV show pitches, blacksmithing, take photos, write, architecture, carpentry, opening businesses,  product design, or whatever I can get people to let me do. I have a lot of energy and I love trying new things.

 

 

 

Is irony important to your art?

 

Almost not at all. I make things I really care about. I might be self deprecating, oblivious, and aggressive at times, but I try to shy away from irony.

 

 

 

 

What contemporary artists do you admire?

 

Pharrell, Tyler The Creator, Karl Wirsum, Kristen Liu-Wong, Craig Stecyk, and heaps of others.

 

 

 

 

When you are not making things, what do you do? 

 

Smoke weed, eat, and sleep.

Any future plans or artistic dreams you can share with us? 

 

I’d like to work on something narrative driven. Like a TV show.
