Finally have gotten some time to invest into digitizing many of my older and lost pieces and here is an outline I have been really wanting to clean and re-release. It’s a piece that is pure 3D and has none of the abstractions and background interactions that many of my newer graffiti pieces have. The […]
This painting was originally titled “Tattoo Back” It was a painting i really loved. It hung in my tiny apt. on 29th street until i ran into my good friend Janet, NYC police officer, completely gay, and one of my best friends! After running into her on a NYC drunken 3AM stupor she offered me […]

This happens often and its usually where I embark on […]
Cristina 1996 This is the first of what was to become a series using a more vandalized, deteriorated painting style on my painting. It began as a portrait of what would become a very very X-girlfriend, It looked amazing just like her, no naturally i had to vandalize it! It became more my own than […]
