As a Los Angeles native currently living in Boyle Heights, I interact with the LA Art Community, participating in the digital revolution of art and art spaces. My work centers around urban adventures, graffiti art, and street photography (taken locally, as well as during my travels to other countries). My scenes evoke ethereal elements of magic and mysticism in the everyday world, taken with a photojournalistic approach. Adding colorization and animation to themes of struggle, tragedy, and change brings alternative perspectives to the hidden human stories in my body of work. My photographs then become a surrealistic scene of life and its complexities.
