If you had to pick one thing about Pop Culture that you loved, what would it be?
“I love how diverse pop culture has become over the past decade. I feel like pop culture in the early 2000s was very tailored to a specific audience and kind of person, but with new platforms like YouTube and Instagram, people who lacked representation are not only being accepted but praised even. I find it really inspiring how open people are nowadays like I would have never thought boys could be famous online for making videos of them putting on makeup or that a girl like Greta Thunberg could get the amount of attention she did.”
You have such a unique style of art. What inspired you to create the type of art you currently work on?
“I was the obnoxious kind of kid who stared at strangers in public because I’m always studying the little details and colors of my surroundings, and I try to illustrate this complexity in my painting style. I try to capture pretty modern subject matter in my art because I think that, for as much as photography encapsulates a moment, brushstrokes have an ability to convey feeling like nothing else can.”
