Inspired by the song "Black girlfriend" by Porno for Pyros, this painting shows a city on fire, with the words "Ever since the riot, all I ever wanted was a black girlfriend."
I graduated from California Institute of the Arts in 2003 with a BFA in Graphic Design. During my career as a Motion Graphics Designer and then as an Interactive Designer, I have lived in Los Angeles and New York — two cities from which I pull a great deal of inspiration. Throughout my life, I have always drawn and painted. While working at an interactive agency, creating work for clients and Creative Directors, I would spend hours creating artwork for myself as a creative outlet. Over the past few years, I have focused more and more on evolving my artwork.
