My Work

My works  explores graffiti  and street culture in a dimensional  space by using imaginary, geometrical,architectural, and organic shapes inside a spatial background . My work searches for spirituality and the biomorphically abstraction of life.

 I make use of a psychedelic palette scheme with vibrant and saturated colors. I want my work to be visually invasive, loud and violent to the eye.
