What mediums do you like working with or in?
I make some paintings using traditional artist's oils and others using spray paint, but I don't consider myself a graffiti artist. Ultimately, art materials are simply a means to an end. It's difficult to put into words, but painting is the best way I have found to communicate certain intangible things. If I could explain it in words, I wouldn't need to spend all that time painting.

  1. Nice video presentation of a nifty piece of artwork. Well done! From a non artistic perspective, I'm glad you chose Relic as your subject as he was an outstanding character - my favourite for sure - on the show.
