 About the artwork- SUPERATI series

“My work is a fun house reflection of a bankrupt culture. I wish to say something honest and meaningful about contemporary society and the world we live in, pulling classical imagery into the pop culture dialog by using graphic language reminiscent of the source material married to painterly studies quoting key moments in art history.”
