Proposal – Connected Perspectives of San Francisco’s Neighborhoods
I would use landscape paintings of various views of the San Francisco skylines and street scenes to connect communities though their different neighborhood’s perspectives of the city, much like the paintings I submitted. I would relate certain subjects placed in the scene to the poems, ranging from people using various gestures and interactions, to objects, stylized maps, to animals, water, glows, and anything mentioned in the poem.” I’d like to incorporate Muni buses, routes, and stations in the scenes to pull it all together.
I’ve lived in San Francisco for 34 years. Born in Miami Fl. & graduated from Columbia College with a BFA in painting & photography. I also lived for two years in London where I studied art & Italian at the City Literary Institute. I studied drawing, painting, printmaking, & art history at the Rutherford School of Art in Malaga, Spain. Most of my career has been as a 2d/3d/ digital artist/animator for games with a focus on UI/UX which I also applied to the automotive industry for 2 years designing dashboard displays for VW. I taught art at The Art Institute San Francisco & Expression College for Digital Art for 4 years. I freelance as a photographer and & continue to paint. I own a Gallery/Photo Studio in San Francisco and am currently painting large scale public murals.
