I consider books the best way to experience art. I've spent decades studying books about the art, mythology, religion and history of cultures from across geography and time. Entirely self-taught, I look to works by German Renaissance printmakers, Flemish primitives, abstract expressionists, Japanese woodblock artists, and Mughal painters for inspiration. I also frequently incorporate religious iconography from Europe, Asia, and Pre-Columbian Latin America with revolutionary propaganda from around the world. With a distaste for ironic art or the thoughtless appropriation of culture, I integrate seemingly unrelated images in search of something universal. I do not create any of my art digitally; everything comes from my own hand.
