I think of myself as a ‘Renaissance Man’: schooled in several disciplines and a practitioner of commerce, computer science and, most recently my Digital Art, which I have perfected over the last ten years.
I have traveled the world on business and have thereby inculcated the exotic tastes, colors, and aromas of foreign lands from the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Caribbean into my work. Having grown and traveled with my father who was in the fashion business, I learned some of his craft through osmosis and instinctually portray some hints of textile, fabrics, lines and curves into my art. I have been a photographer since my youth and my eye has thereby been trained to inherently indentify interesting patterns, shadows & highlights and composition in virtually every image I see.
I bring these experiences to my art through the use of my computer and the software I have developed to create my unique form of art; and, more recently, the work I create exclusively with my iPhone4. Simply put, my art is atypical. No fractals, composites or ‘green screens’ are used; just layered, earthy textures, vibrant colors that coax the spectrum into refraction, architectural lines that lead the eye into space and, lights within shadows. This is how I build my work, one pixelized brick at a time.
I have had several private and public showings and my pieces have already worked their way into private collections. My work has been shown at various exhibitions and galleries around the world, including: The Annual Munson Massachusetts Spring Art Show; GaleriaZero, Barcelona, Spain & in Chelsea, London; The Forbes Galleries & The SOHO Gallery for Digital Art, New York, NY; The Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art and, The Giorgi Gallery, in California; and, The Lunch Box Gallery, Miami Beach.
