I was born in 1978 in San Diego California. I was the first American citizen in my family, which at last count was a crowd of well over 100 people. I have many memories of visiting my family in Tijuana. I started drawing because my mom would take us to church sometimes up to three times a week. I would hide a folded piece of paper in my bible so that I could sneak in some drawing during the sermon because I couldn't convince my mom that I could listen and doodle at the same time. In 1992, we were living in this nice trailer park and my neighbor introduced me to the graffiti subculture. Since then I've dedicated hundreds of hours into being good at graff and having fun. The paintings in this show are pieces of stories that have been told, witnessed, or channeled from beyond space and time.
