Biography / IDRAWALOT

“As my art and vision evolves—from blank slate, to paper, to mural, to installation, to unoccupied public space—our understanding and comprehension of the world around us begins to unfold as well. We may not notice the input, infiltrating our subconscious—our everyday—but it’s there. A beautiful woman’s face composed of negative space watching peacefully over a cemetery in Wedding, a fragile old Jewish woman towering over a decommissioned factory in Berlin, an urban zoo of imagined creatures deposited all over the globe, a 32 meter tall Totem of 3 people in Berlin representing ”Community,” A peaceful man watching over the old ”Beachnut“ factory in Rochester, New York… My art and commentary on history and culture are everywhere, becoming part of the collective unconscious.

Through my travels to Italy, Israel, Japan, throughout the US and Europe, my overarching theme of people and the spaces they occupy and interact with has taken shape. By focusing on pieces, which work to become part of public space rather than interrupt it, my intent to create regenerative art through murals and other mediums is being actualized. I’m achieving this both independently and collaboratively with other contemporary artists and painters. My recent and current collaborative projects also highlight his more narrowed focus of interconnectedness, “connecting humanity around the world with different cultures from different places,” I want the viewer to value tiny lines, details, to appreciate a world view and hopefully, start extolling minute details of our own.

It takes conviction, one with drive, courage, and patience, to express myself this way. To project my voice and vision for the world to see—to rip it out of a sketchbook or a blank page—and produce it. To take it beyond the two-dimensional and spray paint, wheat paste, create, the side of a building with an illimitable piece of art. To exhibit in public space—on walls or in art galleries—what a beautiful thing. Art—“a new mode of obtaining power of mind over mind” leaving the watching to the watched.”
