ENTER A
NEW DIMENSION

artwork is one of the best expressions of the human soul.
I began creating artwork in 2018, finding a new medium of expression for my creativity, emotions, and life. One of the most profound experiences I’ve had involved getting lost in my first acrylic painting; it was a journey that led me to tears, laughter, and joy. Thank you for viewing my work.

My work spans a variety of themes. Primarily, it involves the story of a young man who is making his way through life without the guidance and wisdom of his father. That young man is me.

Hades

Never alone

About Project

The Greeks believed the underworld; the land of the dead, to be ruled by the god “Hades”, which eventually became the name of the location, itself.

When I began painting, I started to see many expressions of my Dad emerge through the artwork.

On the right side of this piece, you can see a silhouette. This represents my Dad, and the void of his presence in my life. 

on the left side, you see a man hunched over in pain. To his right, another figure lifts its hand to its mouth, as gold and blue fall. 

Two characters are represented to show both sides of my heart. One side is broken and doing its best to heal. The other side attempts to mask the pain, though it only causes parts of himself to be lost (shown in blue). 

Both characters walk the path that leads to death, as all humans do. 

 

It’s a healing process, where I reflect back on his memories while creating each piece. however, not all of the reflections bring back positive memories – or joy in the present moment. 

Behind every stroke is a young man who misses his Dad.
