[University of Houston, Texas, USA, Bachelors of Fine Art & Art History. 2007]
For the past 15 years I have been developing an invented world which I call: The Fire Fountain. For this world I have created a language which uses an unique alphabet and an ideogramic system. I also have created a full mythic cycle that contains a pantheon of gods, spirits, heros as well as sacred realms.
I create paintings, books and dimensional ritual objects. My works are visually formal and are based on geometric and systemic art. However, they contain a unique typography of original narrative texts and symbolic images. They are a result of my constantly evolving world which is based upon a seemingly random system. The materials I use in my works existed and were used by scribes in the ancient past like: hand made books of papyrus and amate, gum arabic inks and a variety of panels that hearken back to iconic traditions.
