From the artist: “The title of the exhibition is Stolen Identity. I chose to entitle the exhibition Stolen Identity because my artworks display emotions of being lost, and hopelessness.
The most meaningful creative exercise I ever did was listening to music and drawing the rhythm of the music on the paper, it helps me increase sensory awareness, facilitate mindfulness and encourage emotional expression. The exercise is known as an art therapy activity.
To this day, the resulting art works I have done is the purist artistic rendering I have ever made.
I have lovingly worked on these pieces, adding textures and colors, light and shadows into the figurative characters. Most pieces are created on MDF wood and card stock with oil and ink. These artworks are special to me because they are created from my mind and feelings about life and society through the ages of 20 to 30 years old. I’m here to give color to the world.”
