"Victorion defender of San Francisco"

Latex and spay paint

"This painting is of a character from my book that i have been working on for over a year now. It's actually formed by six Victorian house's-. Out of the context of my written book, I kind of see the character as this hero for the under represented in city and a symbol of San francisco's fighting stance for some kind of regional or national injustice. Istopped painting about my life and started to make paintings to just sell-so they end up having less characters and more buildings with way more clearer of a message. I'm now more interested in telling imaginative narratives not personal ones anymore."
