I have way more compliments than complaints, but theres always the odd asshole here and there who can't take criticism or even an opinion. When it comes to art, everything should be allowed. You can debate about it. of course. But art should never be discredited, or ignored just because one doesn't understand it. Ever. No matter the content. Any really. Because that's the beauty of art, that's what makes art so special...well, to me at least.
"Many artists use a variety of complicated philosophical words and frases to describe their work. So for any of you reading this, i hope you don't mind if i just cut through the fucking crap, and i'll be who i am. A rather simple and straight to the point guy. Unafraid of what others may think of me or my art."
Simply put...I paint what i see. Things that revolt me. Shit that pisses me off. Things i wish i could change. Everyday situations that are filtered onto wood, canvas, cardboard or any materials i may find useful to paint on. But mostly my work is about honesty. And you can't contain your feelings or be afraid of what others may think if you want to be totally open and honest.
To me, true art is the art that is straight in your face and fully open to any kind of criticism. I don't let ego or creticism get between me or my work. Why should i? Fuck that bitch!
Some people have a diary where they keep all their thoughts and feelings locked and hidden away.You can say that my work is also like a diary, only i use visuals instead of just pen and paper. And i don't lock those thoughts away. I show them to the world. Any subject can turn into a piece of art. A painting, a sculpture, depending of how i feel on any given day. Though in most cases my work is extremely personal, even if not obvious at first glance.
I am not trying to please anyone with my work but myself. And i couldn't care less what anyone fucking thinks about it. As an artist, i feel that there are no rules or barriers that can't be crossed. if those exist in the art world, i sure break them all, every single time. but not necessarily, intentional. I break rules because i'm always shearching for answers. Art gives you that
sometimes. An answer. A sense of inner peace. A sense of purpose.
There's nothing better than getting a coffee ready... while surrounded by art. Put on some good music, feel the smell of paint, and start creating art. I am beyond blessed that i can do this for a living.
I was never afraid to express my feelings. And much less so when it comes to my art, or any art for that matter. I am fearless. Totally! Because art gives me that freedom. The freedom to say anything. And somehow feel free and protected. That's how powerful art is...
