WADA Artist Member, Junkyrd, and his contribution to the WADA Art Tubs Project
I am a full time visual artist. I work with multiple tools and mediums like canvas, wood and even skin as far as tattooing. Most of my work is acrylic on canvas and one can describe my work to be abstract and impressionistic. I’m aware of popular culture and paint what’s on my mind in the moment, influenced by history. The majority of my work shows movement with layered brush strokes. Also, music is critical to my process from start to finish. I rely on hip hop, jazz and live instrumentation to fuel my drive. Art is the getaway to my imagination, challenging me and channeling my youth.
As I grow, I continue to pay homage to what art has done for me beyond talent and practice. My goal is to shed light on the inspiration all around us and continually shift perceptions by pushing limits of 2 dimensionality. My art helps express feelings words fail to describe in our complex and dynamic world. Art can bridge the gaps of cultures, backgrounds and people from all walks of life. Art has allowed me a space to explore and interpret the world around me.
I have my work in galleries in Florida such as Lulu Laboratorium and non-profit organizations such as Youth Concept Gallery as a way to give back to communities and educate others on the importance of art in life.
In art, like Bob Ross said, “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents.”
