How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
All the time
What do you want people to know most about you?
Art & drawing becomes my visual identity to all the images that are alive in my head. The aspects of who I am come out in small details throughout my artwork. Parts of my life dictate the subject matter – emotional catastrophes, self image, experiences & my environment all entwine together. The aspiration of my work is to share these visual images beyond my own reality and with those that contribute to it.
The raw basics of my artwork are simple – a few different styles of ink pens and a couple blank sheets of paper. Most concepts brew in my head for a few weeks before they are sketched in. By the time my process starts there is general intent and composition behind it. Details are always left blank; this allows me the flexibility to change my artwork during the process. The originals are stored away in my archival books, but the images are re-produced using several printmaking techniques I have taught myself.
The Friends of AIDS Foundation is currently seeking artistic submissions from individuals interested in donating their talent to the POSITIVE INSPIRATIONS project.
POSITIVE INSPIRATIONS is the exciting and upcoming publication designed to raise the level of global HIV awareness through artistic expression. The publication will showcase the talent from individuals around the world who are committed to our fight against the HIV pandemic and the HIV-related stigma.
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned professional, you do not want to miss this opportunity to gain worldwide recognition and enhance your portfolio by joining in our fight against HIV.
Art is the universal language that has the power to bring together many diverse people to hear an important message. Artistic expression has the ability to educate, motivate, and empower people to affect meaningful change. This project is about inspiring others through your creativity to make a positive change. YOUR ART CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
