as a trans-masculine individual of color, I want to show my personal experiences, encourage self-love, inspire others, and fight for my FREEDOM and RIGHTS through the power of art.
YOURSTORY4FREEDOM, ART4FREEDOM, LGBTI+4FREEDOM
My art is a combination of traditional and digital. For traditional works, I tend to focus on telling a story based on my personal experiences. By searching through my emotions, I become capable of reaching down into my inner core which then transforms into a wave of inspiration. I use a wide range of mediums to keep my options open when deciding the perfect fit. Although my pieces may have a concrete narrative to them, the most important aspect I want viewers to take away is the feelings. Many of my works require to be looked at and examined for a decent amount of time to discover their true meaning. I love using symbols, although cliché, I believe it is an effective way to get your point across.
As for digital works, I mainly focus on appealing to the younger generations. I find it exhilarating to draw fan-favorite characters. It serves as a learning experience because I get to see what works and what does not, to discover the reasoning of why these characters are so loved depending on their development. I get the best of both worlds and I am always very open to trying new things such as techniques and approaches relating to art.
Both an artistic and heroic deed with your time, talent and constant creativity.
My ART4FREEDOM is about the freedom to be yourself.
During my first semester in college, I was given an assignment from my Drawing I Course. We were supposed to choose an object that was precious to us. Thus, I decided to use my Thespian jacket from high school to represent a meaningful value. I wanted it to portray a sense of comfort as well as freedom. Drama Club was the first group of people I came out to as trans-masculine. I was welcomed with an enormous amount of love. I could not be more grateful. I would regularly wear that jacket ever since I got it because it made me feel supported. It served as a symbol of freedom because I felt like I was part of a second family who always had my back and where I could be myself. I was able to break the shackles within myself and be free to reveal my true identity. IAM4FREEDOM!
