Pacrates is the rose that cracked the concrete. The revolutionary philosopher. A manifestation of duality inspired by the ideas and philosophies of Tupac Shakur and Socrates. It symbolizes the dark and the light within myself, and us all. This concept comes through in my work in various ways. I go back and forth between abstract and representational art to satisfy my creative desires, as well as using stark contrasts in colors and textures that balance into harmony, which is the ultimate goal. My passions fuel the fire that forges my art. Music inspires emotions and thoughts that express themselves through creativity.
