My neighborhood was rich with Puerto Rican and African American culture that brought excitement into my young imagination. Although people spoke abusively about the Bronx during the seventies, I could only find good in my environment, much like “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids”.
These memories; these cultures rich in history, art, food, and dance, have influenced the way I paint with a papyri of never ending subject matter. A subject matter filled with affection & storytelling; captured with an abundant use of light, darkness, and refracted colors that can only be provided by a place like, “The Bronx.”
