This piece act as an editorial about turning real dangers into forms of escapism. I see a connection between the disappearances of ancient civilizations and the potential for an atomic armageddon in today's world. History often repeats itself. Can nuclear-fueled kaiju, lost civilizations, and tiki culture teach us something?
I was born in Salem, MA and raised in the Greater Boston area. My youth was spent in ice rinks, but I managed to discover my passion for making art. In 2001, I earned a BFA in Graphic Design with Honors from Montserrat College of Art. During the following year, I began work on the “space-ism” concept which produced the first piece for the Icon Series. The concept focuses on creating planes of space within two dimensional artwork while simplifying the imagery to geometric shapes. In addition, I produce drawings, mixed media pieces, and work as a graphic designer. Since 2003, my wife and I have been stuck in the terrifying traffic of Southern California.
