My obsession with art and design began when I
discovered the Pop Art movement. I was drawn to the
bold colors and strong lines employed by the likes of
Roy Liechtenstein and Andy Warhol. Yet I would say
that it was through Dadaism that the Idea of working
within the visual arts became ingrained within me.
The dadaists would take existing things within
various forms of media and would recontextualize
them. This is something that speaks to me
on a personal level and drives my artistry.
My current primary sources of inspiration are both
old and new. I like to draw heavy inspiration from the
Bauhaus and Swiss Design movement for their
focus on strong typographic arrangements and
simple yet bold colors. But not everything calls for
simplicity. One of my favorite current trends within
the Graphic Design world is Digital Deconstruction.
My current obsession with it is fueled by the fact
that it allows me to make use of all of my skills, from
3DCG to Digital Illustration to Adobe illustrator.
