A Bronx-based creative who focuses on creating work that inspires Black and Latinx people. With a B.A. in architectural studies and a minor in Studio arts from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, he utilizes the intersections of art and design to create moments of critical thinking. He has exhibited in various shows around the country and world, most recently in Osaka,Japan. In 2015, Syracuse University acquired a piece of his work that joined the institution’s permanent collection. When not painting or creating physical art work, he spends time as one of the core graphic designers for the Black Lives Matter network as well as freelance designing for clients that range from small local businesses to large companies and universities. In a world that is constantly telling Black and Latinx people that they do not matter, he intends to continue creating work that uplifts the very same people.
