Art and design aren't just hobbies; they are profound passions that resonate deeply with those who practice them. For me, it all started with a simple drawing of Peter Criss, the drummer from Kiss, way back in the '70s. Though it might not have been a masterpiece, the encouragement from my family was all I needed to embark on a lifelong journey of artistic exploration.
The Journey Begins: Discovering a Passion for Art
From the moment I held a pencil, art captivated me. Those early years were filled with scribbles and sketches, each one a stepping stone towards honing my skills. My family's unwavering support was a crucial catalyst, transforming a budding interest into a burning passion. Their words of encouragement weren't just polite compliments; they were the fuel that propelled me forward.
The Art of Drawing: Foundations of a Mural Artist
Every artist's journey is unique, but one thing remains constant: the importance of a strong foundation. For me, this foundation was built on the basics of drawing. It taught me about lines, shapes, and shadows, the very elements that later allowed me to scale my art from paper to walls.
Exploring a variety of artistic mediums enriches my creative process. On the streets, I predominantly employ soft pastels and Tempera paint, each offering unique textures and effects perfect for outdoor art. For mural projects, acrylics, and spray paints are my go-to choices due to their versatility and durability in large-scale works.
Pop Culture inspires me—movies, TV, music, and wildlife. As a street painter, I'm sure you can see it in my work. When doing art and design work and working with a client as an artist, you need to have a wide array of content.
