“I am a New York based figurative artist and mainly do oil painting. For me, painting is a respite and healing. Painting portraits often reflects my emotional state in my virtual reality. I paint color shapes stacked in layers in the background to make the subject stand out more and convey my emotion with the object. I hope my art transforms emotion, peels back layers of the subconscious, replaces anxiety and stress with positivity.”
