Beginning of 2012 saw me preparing for my first ever show with Thinkspace Gallery, Los Angeles. The exhibition, titled Picks of the Harvest 2012 is showcasing over 60 talented young contemporary worldwide artists from all walks of life.
Waiting for Walter is an oil on canvas piece that I've created for the show. I often go around hunting for interesting urban spaces to feature. This particular background was snapped while I was wandering around Melrose, Los Angeles. At times it tickles my fancy to ponder about the reactions of the residents upon discovering that their familiar spots has been featured on my canvas. Sometimes I think about dropping small printouts of the space relating paintings into their mailboxes. Then shyness gets the better of me and I retreat back into the comforts of my studio space.
