The artist’s work is characterized by the synthesis of political content with haunting modern elements. The resulting images are sometimes startling, even disturbing, as we are made more aware of the violence and discrimination that surrounds us. It is the artist’s intent to never let us forget or ignore the injustices of our world. Rather, he seeks to show to us the undiluted truths…overwhelming us with the realities of war, poverty, and ignorance.”Art can be a product and reflection of society, it’s hardest critic, and a catalyst to action.”
