"I am a self taught artist; my work in oil paint reflects my primitive and Outsider's approach to art. My place in the art world can only be understood when considering the scope of the tradition of painting or rather story telling. I see my role as a painter to be a torch bearer for humanity. History is written by the artists, and it's my responsibility to record, respond, and call out, what it means to be human today. I am a cave painter, a grandson of Picasso, Keith Haring's little brother."
