Artist Biography

  

Artist Statement

When he decided to pursue water sculpture full time, he applied to and was accepted into the prestigious Brooklyn Waterfront (BWAC) “COLORS” show in Red Hook with a fellow collaborator. Out of 2000 applicants, they won both Curator’s Choice and People’s Choice awards at that show.  After BWAC, he was accepted into the Art Miami AQUA Hotel show. There he was offered a spot in the highly visible courtyard of the show where I featured a 9 foot tall red and blue neon water sculpture. It was a great show, with lots of exposure.


In summer 2019, he was invited by designer Melanie Roy, to participate in the Holiday House Hamptons show house in Water Mill, in the Hamptons. It was a great show and the water sculpture he and Melanie collaborated on was a giant clear and mirrored piece. He has been invited to participate in the next Holiday House show which will take place in NYC during the winter.


He is currently working on a 15 foot tall “show-stopper” for the upcoming AQUA Art Miami show during Art Basel this December and will hopefully secure more gallery representation in for my work in the coming months.
