This piece was made to capture the pop-art dichotomy of something that is ugly being made to look beautiful. Combined with the electric glow of the wrench with the sterile background and broken up background the piece is made to capture the feelings embedded with a work ethic that is under appreciated.
From the backwoods of the sticks of Catanduanes to eventually going to Faith Academy in the Philippines before now starting school in Riverside California while residing in San Jose California I feel like a crazed man. My experiences overseas growing up while not unique have grown my creative talents and expanded my ability to think outside the box and try to break down concepts to tell a story. Sometimes its turning letters into ships. Other times it can be focusing on one single concept like illumination or ideation or separation. Either way I'm sort of an populist iconoclast. If everyone is a rebel I follow the rules and vice versa. Not to mention I love the creative process in of itself. Once you get started it can be difficult but anything difficult is made easy if you love it. This bringing of things from conceptual to finished is what I love and more importantly fleshing out the conceptual stages as much as possible.
