Self Portraits

Consisting of fantasized self portraits that are imaginings reflective of my cultural values and identity, my most recent works are larger than life portraits. Each head is distorted and ranges from the colorful fantastically sublime to the grotesque. The reason why I chose self portrait is that I wanted to see something intriguing, surprising, unique, and fascinating in what I create from my portrait. Most of my self portrait paintings are done in oil on wood panel. The pleasure and passion in the work comes from picturing different versions of myself being a Buddhist, Jesus Christ, smoking, innovative super natural thinking that do not exist in the world. In fact, my self portraits are some of my funniest paintings I have done so far.
