In my art, I explore my Latino roots, while simultaneously paying homage to the artists Alice Neel, Konstantine Bokov, Vincent Van Gogh, and Frida Kahlo. Inspired by them but not mimicking their flair for the extraordinary and the flamboyant, my art is imbued with a quiet terror, mirroring my life as well as that of the artists I was exposed to in New York.
