Biography: 

Hello, here's some quick facts about me and what I do:

Me - I am currently a resident of St. Albert and have been for most of my life. I am introverted 26 years old with the imagination of someone twenty years younger, which I think is a good thing. I would like to think of myself as an artist that has an Engineering hobby. 

Art History - I have only began getting serious about my art in October 2012. Before that, I have dabbled in a number of different mediums and created a number of unorthodox styles and techniques over the last ten years. Some of the things I have worked with are: hand cut vinyl graphics, painting clothing using silkscreen inks, block printing, watercolour and acrylics and their related mediums. Recently, I have started to push into more of an abstract realm and started to incorporate some of my old styles and motifs into my new works.

Inspirations & Directions - A majority of my art centers around girls, specifically their faces, and the colour blue. Don't ask me why, I think it is something about the natural beauty that I find in women and how much you can read from a person's face. As far as the blue thing goes, I just like it. I hope to use more colours in the future.

A lot of my style is derived from pop art, tattoos, skateboard/snowboard graphics, video games and electronic music. I make pieces that are interesting to me, even if they outside the ordinary art tastes. Ordinary things bore me anyways.

Future - Although I have only had a single piece in one art showing (here at VASA during Wet Paint), I am looking to expand my repertoire and hopefully showcase some of my work in a local gallery sometime this year.

Regards,

Peter
