Mixed Media Urban Art Collage

Finding inspiration from cultural representations; painters like Van Gogh, Hip-Hop Culture, Street Art, and Couture Fashion. This mixed media collage series has been shown at WallspaceLA, The Hive Gallery and been part of street art auctions such as the revered Julien’s Auctions.
Both of my collage series', "Simple Connection" and "Words of Wisdom" are collections of mixed media portraits and phrases that are empowering to the viewer. These portraits are strong, vibrant, and tell a story in each painting. They are all part of the human experience, catching moments filled with emotion and sharing phrases that important to growth.
The process is a long one but worth it;
Rip up recycled magazine pages and paste to the entire background, create stencil, paint both image and background, tweak, seal, frame.
