Artist Statement:

I am a Los Angeles based visual artist specializing in acrylic paintings with a historical context behind them. As a first generation immigrant, I have lived in various parts of the world including England, West Africa, and New York City, each of which have played a role in my work today. The blend of my childhood experiences in music, entertainment, and sports have influenced my desire to narrate stories through my paintings. I like to use common logos as a way to exemplify capitalism and the role it plays in our society.
