In 87' he was accepted into Art Center to further his perspective. The painting was where his passion lay so, he began having shows anywhere possible. Antique stores, Cafes,...etc. Then some commercial opportunities revealed themselves in the form of Designer and Art Director. It was fun and prosperous, but not painting. Now, he paints Commissions, Figures, landscapes, and urban areas.

Definition of Oil & Acrylic: Oil paint consists of finely divided pigment particles evenly dispersed in a liquid medium or vehicle; it has the property of drying to form a continuous, adherent film when applied to a surface for decorative or protective purposes.
Acrylic or polymer paint: The most widely used artists’ colors based on synthetic resins. These paints are made by dispersing pigment in an acrylic emulsion. These colors are thinned with water, but when they dry, the resin particles coalesce to form a tough, flexible film that is impervious to water.
This exhibition is for non-digital artwork.
Both definitions courtesy of “The Artist’s Handbook of Materials and Techniques” Fourth Edition Revised and Updated by Ralph Mayer.
