My Art Background
Back in my art school days, I transitioned from traditional painting techniques to movements like Assemblage, Mixed Media and Surrealism. I experimented a lot with a variety of collage media, which mostly included found objects assembled in unconventional ways.
Some influences include Edward Kienholtz and Robert Rauschenberg mixed with a bit of surrealism like Salvador Dali. My work has often been described as “Urban Tribalism,” due to the use of metals and synthetic materials mixed with natural elements like stone and wood, its subjects evoking themes of birth, death, intimacy, chaos and love.
