Life Is What We Make It, so Let Us Make It WORTHWHILE
I am an indirect functional, Artist-Philosopher and Visual Writer creating a fictitious world to advocate secular virtues, thus revealing simple truths. You can think of me as a 21st century symbolist aiming to provoke thought, curiosity, and inquisitiveness through constructing allegorical depictions. If I was born in a different era, I would have been a medieval illuminator!
I am interested in intricate and subtle details, as I take pleasure in creating a stylized form of symbolist art. I rework and implement new concepts by combining representational imagery, varying line-weight and quality to imply space and movement, overlapping and superimposed imagery, applying harmonious and/or contrasting colors, and using organic and geometric shapes. The framework of each composition is a derivative of interconnected ideas that I express allegorically with originality and socio-cultural influences. I focus on ethics, harmony, and nature and utilize a push and pull technique.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, with ancestry in the Dominican Republic. I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art from Florida Atlantic University concentrating on drawing, painting, and printmaking in 2011; I graduated magna cum laude, with a general GPA of 3.5/ 4.0 and 3.7 in my major. Moreover, as a member of The National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS), I aspire to become an influential artist. I hope to inspire other leaders, advocates, and the community at large. My vocation is to create aesthetically pleasing and intellectual works of art and support services that positively impact humanity.
