Stencils/Aerosols

Stencils/Aerosols

Having started in graffiti in the early 2000’s aerosol paints and stencils have been such a big part of my artwork foundation. Watching street artists taking their works to public spaces was very inspiring, and I drew on the works of banksy, shepard fairey, dave kinsey, blek le rat, and several others to create some of my very first works of art. In fact, the very first art related book I received was “Street World: Urban Art and Culture from Five continents,” which further propelled this creativity, and was the real birth of my work. Today I still use aerosol paints and graffiti sporadically in my work, always remembering the freedom and danger it created for me all those years ago.
