If there is one factor that defines my work, I would say it is the concept of communication. I like to consider myself not so much a painter but a visual storyteller. Language, images, stories and symbols weave a thread that can overcome social, cultural, economic, political and religious barriers and that is why I employ images that can be identified and recognized by many people. These can be found in the form of pop culture references, spiritual imagery, historical events and folk stories. These ideas can then be arranged by the viewer according to their experiences and then shaped into their own personal narratives, in that way becoming interactive and in turn making them their own.
