About the Artist
I've returned to painting after years of working in different mediums including street theater, multi-media events, dance, film, and especially music. Painting allows me to answer solely to my own instincts as opposed to depending on others for collaboration. The many people I've known, in all mediums, have influenced me and helped greatly in my process. Painting enables my imagination to run free.
My influences include Anselm Keifer, Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, Rembrandt, JMW Turner, Miles Davis, and especially my friend and inspiration Byung-Ki Kim!
