 Décollage / Mixed Media

Growing up in L.A. during the 70’s and 80’s he was heavily influenced by what he saw from the car—larger-than-life billboards and bright colors shining in the California sun. He has been continuously fascinated by movies that combines his love of photography, graphics, typography and pop culture, with Hollywood’s iconic imagery. His mixed media works on wood and canvas utilize his own photography, vintage movie posters, digital, transformed with oil paint, acrylics, watercolor, and pen and ink and what he grabs at the time. Randomly torn and ripped, the result is an edgy piece – a darkly romantic take on film history. By deconstructing found imagery, original photography and painted elements.
