As artists, I realize we have the opportunity to inspire reality not only by the way we see it, but also by the way we help others see it.
My work with concentric circles is a break from tradition. I’m inspired by the cyclical nature of life and the Universe; and the balance, symmetry and the energy of which circles represents. I use circles as both a method and as tools to express the way I perceive the Universe and World around me. In painting in concentric circles I hope to reveal a brand new way to relate to subject matter and narrate unique visual stories.
I use the highest quality materials including pure oil pigment paste and knife tools to create the bold multiple layers of colors leading to the rich textural outcome. I create these circles all by free-hand, in pursuit of precision and fluidity. There are no tools or mechanical devices involved in creating my reality.

I am a very passionate and committed artist whose works express volumes about his remarkable artistic journey and inspiring life story. I began creating art early as a child. Initially inspired by his artist mother, I went on to study Fine Art in College and quickly developed into a prolific accomplished artist.
I’m an artist whose unique style blends his drive for emotive forms with the sublime elements of artistic experimentation. With the avid use of fluid, soothing and yet profound color palette, I have developed a new approach in painting which involves the transformational use of palpable concentric circles to tell visceral and subtle visual narratives. Nurturing an avid and explorative mind, my hands always dance to the constant compelling rhythm of creativity that my mind produces.
I have exhibited in many International art fairs, art galleries and art shows around the world including: Florence International Contemporary Art Biennale, the Art Expo New York, the Project Row Houses and the Bayou City Art Festival both in Houston, the PAFF Los Angeles and others. He has been featured on Houston CBS TV Channel 11; Houston KPFT FM 90.1 Radio; Houston Fox TV Channel 26; The Houston Chronicle Newspaper, Princeton Packet Newspaper in New Jersey and The Daily Press Newspaper in Victorville California. I’ve also done interviews for multiple foreign media outlets. My works are both in private and public collections.
I recently represented the United States at the International Contemporary Art Biennale (Florence Biennale) in Florence Italy in October of 2015; and will do so again in 2019. I was honored with a Medici Medal for Excellence in Painting at the Florence International Biennale for Contemporary Art in Florence Italy 2015. In 2018, I won a Grant for my accomplishments in Painting, courtesy of The Adolph and Esther Gotlieb Foundation NY.
I work from my Studio @ Sawyer Yards in Houston Texas.
