Adding Gold Leaf to Artwork | Fine Art Wynwood

Thought I'd give a quick update on how I add gold leaf to my artwork. Gold leaf really adds a new element to my drawings. You can see how the glimmer of the gold leaf transforms the fine art into something unique and special by adding a three dimensional quality to it. If you are interested in purchasing any of my works or visiting Wynwood studio to see the works in person use the contact form and reach out to me. If you would just like to send me a quick note thats welcomed as well! 

Newly completed mural with my team The Color Dreamers in Wynwood

Just completed a public art mural that was commissioned by the City of Olympia in Washington state with my mural team The Color Dreamers. Though we have completed many murals in the Wynwood Miami, this is our first public art collaboration out of state by a city government.

PBIA commissioned the project and we were very happy to light up the town with color throughout the week long process. 

Below is our time lapse video of the entire mural process. Enjoy!

Monarch Series

Zaha Hadid the Iraqi architect and also known as the Queen of Architecture was one of my greatest inspirations for most of my work. Hadid's death had an impact on me instantly as I was hoping to one day meet her. This artwork is tribute that incorporates some of the elements of her own building designs including her 1000 Museum building to be completed in Miami 2018.

Art studio visits in Wynwood is interesting, you walk through a door into an artists private creative process, you see the little details that make up their work, you see the madness, the thought process, the inspirational elements that make up the soul and the vulnerability. My studio is made up of a collection of dust and relics from my past, books sit on wine box shelves and a small array of antiques I've collected through my travels. At any moment your eye may catch an antique primitive manual hand drill or a cheap thrift store art-piece that inspired me.

My workspace often remains cluttered with various pen sizes, markers,, rulers, triangles and micron-pens. Often sitting on my shelf you may find a book on Aztec culture, Ernst Haeckel, slam poetry or modern architecture. A collection of various sized magnifying glasses in array of materials ranging from wood to metal to bronze. Empty Bottles of Malbec wine usually line the edge of the wall next to a mustard yellow vintage sofa which has often been the witness to sleepless nights at my desk and long mornings. the scent of indian incense regularly fill the air and dried flowers left in an empty wine bottles line my work shelf.

I find that my studio brings a bit of frustration at times, my unfinished art pieces stare me in the face, mocking me to finish them and it becomes a struggle and balance between production and perfection.
