About The Artwork

When Barack Obama became the president of the United States in 2008, I started my Obama Series from that historic moment. I depict my reactions as daily routine tasks, such as planting flowers in a pot, and paint them over newspaper articles with world implications. I used a simple plant for the "Sapling" piece, the first of the Obama series that metaphorically depicts new hope for a new era.

Everett Memorial Award for the Advancement of American Art from Allied Artists of America in 2002 & 2008. In 2003, while traveling with a Xavier Gonzalez & Edwards grant from the Art Students League of NY, I joined the Cercle Artistic de Sant Lluc in Barcelona, Spain. My art has been shown at selected and invited exhibitions, mostly in public spaces, in over 120 groups, eight solo, and 2 two-person exhibitions throughout the U.S., Italy, Spain, Japan, and South Korea.
