There’s nothing less artistic than a man feeding off his emotions and spiraling into anger. A bad temper is an expensive luxury. I’m frustrated with this piece, which is the perfect time to put it away for a few weeks and return to it with fresh eyes. . Lesson: never rush your art. . . . . #artwork #wip #contemporaryart #vancouverartist #charcoaldrawing #oilpaints #portraitart #realism #portraitpainting #artsy #acrylicpainting #gouache #figurativepainting #figurativeart #artistoninstagram #oilart #kunst #inthestudio #lessonlearned #creativeprocess #mindset #finearts #acryliconcanvas #vancouverart #artlife #oilpainting #saintsaturday #contemporaryartist
. Beyond the narcissistic illusions and noise of this Age awaits a new Renaissance. . At this very moment we are building it. . The new author’s soul pours out through his keyboard, every word brings him closer to competing a book that will change the lives of people he will never meet. Every design, every brushstroke, every idea made real carries us forward towards our destiny. . In response to suffering let’s turn our pain into art. Instead of petty social outrage let’s meet fear with power and presence of mind. In rebellion against the fake and the shallow, let’s search for retreating beauty in a world of chaotic glamour. . Live well, love deep, and walk boldly upon a path with heart. Stride it breathlessly because time is running out, and your 15 minutes of fame is about to expire. . .

My work investigates the fine line between fact and fiction, and how context differentiates reality from fantasy. . The objective is a juxtaposition between vulnerability and raw power. Nameless yet strangely familiar figures are immortalized in a state between creation and destruction that reflects their energy as they struggle to solve the puzzle of their multiplex, hybrid lives. .

The original painting titled “Shock & Awe” in the collection of @juliuscaesar at ALLHAIL | The Pillars Club in DTLA. . I feel most connected to the bold, the daring, the successful misfits who want to be part of something bigger than themselves… or create it. . A pleasure to see my work in the space of exactly that kind of visionary. . . . . #contemporaryartist #modernart #galleryart #contemporaryart #abstractart #figurativeart #acryliconcanvas #mixedmedia #artist #acryliconcanvas #vancouverartist #orobouros #ALLHAIL #artscene #laartscene #misfits #visionary #artistofinstagram #artgallery #artoftheday #urbanart #artlovers #figurativepainter #artistry #DTLA #saintsaturday #laart #artcollector #mindset
Avoiding risk is the most foolish risk you can take. . Truly, do you remember the guy who ventured nothing new? The girl who did the same thing as everyone else? . Neither do I. . . . An experimental piece I started last year and decided to finish. I’ve seen a handful of other artists use this technique, and I wanted to know what it would do for my work. >>>SWIPE FOR VIDEO>>> . Acrylic, gouache, and spray on canvas. 122cm x 122cm. Just for fun, Not for sale. . . . . #3DArt #3D #psychedelicart #psychedelic #experimentalart #fineart #paintings #seeingdouble #acryliconcanvas #oilpainting #oilpaintings #oiloncanvas #acrylicpainting #newcontemporary #modernartist #vancouverartist #vancouverart #laart #floridaartist #londonart #kunst #inthestudio #ontheeasel #artoftheday #mindblown
. “Let us prepare our minds as if we’d come to the very end of life. Let us postpone nothing.” — Seneca . Memento Mori is a reflection on the truth of mortality to which we are bound. And we would do well to remember this. . There can be no doubt that live in a noisy, numb, narcissistic age. The talents and attentions of the majority are not invested in personal mastery or great deeds, but squandered on surrogate experiences, voyeurism, and mindless social outrage. . It falls to each of us then to stand as a living rebellion against this humanity-wide midlife crisis. To cultivate big visions instead of quick wins and sure things. To choose effort over entitlement. To pursue greatness, strength and beauty over mass appeal, comfort, and distraction. . The dark spectre reminds us that today’s thoughts and actions become our legacy. You could leave life right now. At any moment. Let that determine what you do, say and think. . Don’t make the world guess about what ignites your soul. Live well, live deeply, and above all - live now. . . . Acrylic, oil, spray and charcoal on canvas. 106cm x 127cm . Limited edition prints and the original artwork will be available for purchase soon. . #contemporaryart #mindset #spirituality #artlife #acrylicpaintings #newcontemporary #charcoaldrawing #oilpaintings #fineart #artistsoninstagram #vancouverartist #modernart #contemporaryartist #abstract #abstractartist #vancouverart #figurativeart #artgallery #saintsaturday #skullart #culture #acryliconcanvas #figurativepainting #darkart #oiloncanvas #spraypaint #newcontemporaryart #skull #stoic #mementomori
My artwork on the cover of an upcoming book by a new author. I’m honoured and excited about this! . A deranged cult is preying on women they find and stalk on Instagram. Dr. Melisa Eastman, a young psychologist with the FBI, is driven by an obsession with tracking down the cult and bringing them to justice in race against time and a fight against the abyss that is already staring back at her... . . .

I learned how to make money by first being broke and losing everything. I mastered civility by studying savages and I found freedom by learning from tyrants. All greatness has its roots in sorrow. . . . Acrylic, charcoal, gouache, oil pastel, bone ashes and willpower on canvas. 102cm x102cm. For the record, this is what my work looks like when it’s half finished. I decided that this one is not meant to be complete, and will remain forever a work in progress. Both being, and becoming. . . . #contemporaryart #mindset #money #success #thoughts #acrylicpainting #oilpainting #oilpastel #artistic #artistsofinstagram #vancouverartist #uncaclulated #contemporaryart #abstractrealism #abstractartiat #vancouverart #figurativepainting #art_gallery #saintsaturday #multimedia #figurativepainting #charcoaldrawing #unfinishedbusiness #figurativeart #expressionism #artworks
Memento Mori . “Remember that you will die” . Far from morbid, this phrase should remind us that time is precious and tomorrow is not promised. . It’s a call for you to live now, live fully, and live well. Don’t squander your love, time and energy doing work you hate, with people who don’t care about you. . But I don’t have to tell you this, do I? . You already know that the seeds of greatness grow faster in the hearts of those doing work they love than in the bitter hearts of those enslaved by work they despise. . So, get busy living! . . .

“The blood of the heroes is closer to God than the ink of the philosophers and the prayers of the faithful” - Julius Evola . It’s all too easy in these days of insta-fame, fake news, and petty social outrage to feel as though we’re doing great deeds. . Posing with a rented Lamborghini becomes a stand in for owning the real thing. . Arguing with strangers on Facebook or YouTube replaces real conflict and real consequences. . The post-modernist globalist machine offers us many comforts and sweet tastes. All it demands of us in return is everything. Our individuality, our freedom, our thoughts, our souls and our power. . Reject the culture of voyeuristic surrogacy and live a real life. Set forth on real adventures. Build real businesses. Form real friendships. Make real art. . . .
