Music and visuals are intimately intertwined, and as a synesthete, I experience this connection in a unique and colorful way. I am able to see the hues and movements of sound, creating a kaleidoscopic universe of endless wonder. My art is a reflection of this sensory experience, as I use vibrant colors and intricate patterns to capture the essence of the world around me.
Ultimately, I hope to bring a sense of playful surprise and wonder to my audience, inviting them to immerse themselves in the art and experience it in their own unique way.
My fascination with the surreal and fantastic stems from my desire to see beyond the surface of things. I draw inspiration from a range of artistic styles, including classical Japanese art, Buddhist art, anime, taino art, surrealism, sci-fi, punk and metal posters, Adult Swim animations, hip hop, anime, video games, and psychedelia. This eclectic mix informs my music as well, and together they create a maximalist approach that encourages viewers to explore the work over and over again, discovering new details with each viewing.
