About This Piece
I entitled this piece - Tainted Perception. This piece depicts how mass-media and advertising distorts people's perception of beauty, leaving them with a tainted perception of themselves. The original piece was created using black india ink on mixed media paper for a group exhibition called CORE.
I have a love affair working in monotone using black india ink. The themes of my work include political statements and social commentary, as well as random, subconsious illustration work. I am inspired to carry and element of truth as a message to the viewer of my artwork. Street art and graffiti is another passion of mine and the roots of my journey as an artist was inspired by my love for comic books as a child. Underground Hip Hop is the sound track to my life.
