What ‘hood are you in?
I am currently living in Alberta specifically Westside of Edmonton. My hometown is Toronto, so I keep flying back and forth for work as I also have families in each part of these cities.
What do you do?
I am a full-time artist incorporating a number of different mediums into my creations. Making art is one important thing that I do. My primary task is to create the art of my choice helping the world to visualize and bringing a style full of energy and colourful vibes to their homes. I spend quite a bit of time observing the world around me. In pondering things, people, politics, nature, mathematics, science, and religion. I observe color, texture, contrast, and emotions.
All of these interpretations require thought. So anytime time you see me sitting in a comfy chair and gazing into space, that’s not necessarily loafing. I might actually be working.
What are you currently working on?
I am currently working on different portrait series in my studio. On a larger scale I am working in general in expanding and exposing my creations to different countries like contracting with couple of different galleries and art dealers in the Middle East to bring my unique style to the Middle East area like Dubai and Saudi Arabia.
