  • These are really interesting paintings. They look like plasticine mouldings. It’s really cool to see something different. They appear to be inspired by children’s toys or just children in general. The first and last paintings are sort of child-like and almost Picasso-esk. I love the simplicity of the idea but the detail of the paint to give such an effect.

  • hehe

    great stuff!!!

    I just saw this work at VOLTA NY shown by the Steven Zevitas Gallery— they are absolutely beautiful in person. They’re huge and quite haunting.

  • Awkward in such a dope way.

  • Pamela

    The first and the last are my favorites, amazing colors!!

  • Erica

    This is so fab to me.

  • Clarice
