The word "Biomorphic" is a term commonly referred as organic, abstract shapes derived from biology or living organisms. The word, "bio", means life; and "morphic", meaning transformation. In an art sense, it is a focus on the power of natural life and use of organic shapes & line work. As a person and artist, it was only natural for me to be inspired by life, with great emphasis on transition. Living in New York, I see life in an urban state of mind capturing the world in 360 degree hyper views. Everyday, I am surrounded by culture, bustling streets, speeding traffic to buildings being torn & built back up in an instant.

My view of the world is a product of the past colliding with the present. I aim to expose the emotional side of the city streets pushing the final image to abstraction & constructing a new view of the world. Each piece represents a world full of ambition, energy and movement. I aim to recreate the world through multiple perspectives captured in various time frames. My artwork is greatly inspired by the world, but hidden between the layers is a narrative of life. My art is a prism of life, beauty and transformation.

I expose the beautiful complexities of being human.

Life is Art.
