Creating something as an artist has always been a passion of mine ever since I was 4 yrs old. Now creating something that has the power to move someone or at least make them look twice at it again I think that, that would ideally be the main goal for an artist who who creates works of art to achieve with his works. They want the observeer to not only observe what
they have created before your eyes but to analyze and connect themselves somehow to what they have just witnessed with their eyes. Sort of like how Leonardo Davinci was able to draw in so many people with his painting of the Mona Lisa begging the question from obseervers to ask inside thier heads is she is smiling or is she frowning or is it somewhere in between? I really would like to expand upon this idea of creating something extraordinary as the Mona Lisa but maybe not just on a simple canvas but maybe on something with a little more elbow room, or in a sense one big ginormous canvas, like the wall of a building or the side of a skyscraper. I think that type of "canvas" could maybe capture the eye of not only many but thousands and thousands of people. I want to be a mural painter and paint walls on sides of buildings all over the world, not just in my homestate of "Cali" (California). I hope to paint murals all over the world in all the major cities and capitols of many countries in Europe preferably Paris, Rome, Sicily, as well as ones in the Middle East like New Delhi,Cairo, Berbera, Southeast Asia like Thailand or Cambodia and so on. I hope to leave a mark everywhere I decide to travel to and leave the people no matter thier language or race or religious orientation to ponder the same thought I would ponder in my own head if I was to look at a a very moving mura which is, what does this mean and how does this affect me and the poeple around me emotionally? I want to paint mostly to express my political and societal views of the world as well as social views that could bring some hapiness and pride back into their countries to get people to see some of the triumphs and also maybe the errors of their ways since we all strive to be better nations or countries but sometimes we are blindsided by all the technology, the weapons, etc, we can produce since like America which is solely built on principle of capitalism and producing as many things as we can to make a profit. I want to get paid for comission or maybe just paint even if I risk being arrrested for it, sometimes saying what you need to say to the world is more important. For example, Martin Luther King Jr. never apologized for speaking out the people about social and racial equality no matter how many times he was arrested for doing so. For me this job wouldn't really be about the money just a way to connect to the people and get them talking about my murals. I live for human reactions and how people respond to certain things, kind of like when why you capture someone in a photo you never want to do a staged photo, the best photos are raw and natural..same thing goes for murals. No matter how many times I want to plan a concept to paint for my murals there are gonna be days where something I see someone doing or something I hear someone saying may influence my ideas of what to paint that day. When I do go out to paint though, I will most likely wear a cap to tuck my hair away from the spray paint or the wall paint and I will wear very simple clothing and paint my face a cso I do not stand out too much because I do not want people to know exactly what I look like just in case I decide to live dangerously and maybe paint something on a wall I'm not exactly commmisioned to do that could be considered vandalism. However, I think there will be more days than not that I will live more on the safe side and simply paint for commission and paint what the city or maybe a particular business wants me to paint on the side of their building. Who knows maybe I will make up a name that everyone can remember me by or maybe the people in each country will make up their own name for me and like Spiderman or any other great Marvel superhero, maybe I will end up in the newspapers and be some kind of "muralist vigilante", so to speak.
