I left my physical gallery in 2020 to test a new art model with Poets & Artists collective run by Didi Menendez, which is connected to multiple galleries and publication systems. Didi is the hardest worker in the Art business that I've seen and I'm very excited to be affiliated with her.
Contact for Representation
Still open to working with select galleries in the US and abroad, if you think my work will be a good fit for your Gallery, do reach out. We'd love to hear from you.
Having command over a variety of visual languages, I specialize in Commissions, both private and corporate, which is the most rewarding and exciting way to create and purchase artwork. We do it together.
Landscapes - Illustrative - Graphic - Abstract - Portraits of People and Pets - Figurative - Modern - Contemporary - Investment Work - Corporate Collection - Decorative - Narrative
Because work is commissioned beforehand, you get to choose your own budget, colors, size, subject and essentially be involved as much as you desire.
HOW TO COMMISSION
Easy. Just give us a ping via email or social media, tell us what you're thinking and we can have a creative session together about it.
If you share your desired budget, we can immediately surface a variety of works and examples that will match your ranges. We don't remotely care what your budget is, so throw out any challenge you wish.
If you know what you want visually or stylistically , we can surface works that will match your tastes and specified decor.
If you don't know either of the above, you can send us a photo of the space you would like work for and we can take a look at a variety if samples visually.
Best case scenario is to have all three pieces of the information above in advance so we can get right to finding the perfect piece for you without delay.
Pricing is simple. It took 10 years to get it down to a science, and I work off of a baseline figure that gives me enough time per sq.ft to make it do what it do, as Ray Charles used to say.

TYPES OF COMMISSIONS
Just do it -- big/small, simple/elaborate, decorative/investment -- doesn't matter. I started painting after seeing in my youth that this is why I'm here, and that something nice or nicer would happen with it at/by the age of 52 (2022). If it's a delusion, I've spent my life and earnings in support of a delusion.
The Most Simple
"Hey ras, I'm looking for This kind of painting to fit This space for This price range... you have anything?" So simple. If you're able to send a photo of your space, we'll superimpose some samples on it, and volley back and forth until we find the winner.
Commissions from Photograph
I love painting from photo more than real life even. For some reason it is a great joy to reinterpret an existing image. It can be a landscape, still-life or person... the subject doesn't matter so much. The joy is in the work.
16x20 inch. A perfect spot to start collecting. I suggest a simple landscape from photo, or perhaps and abstract portrait.
If you have blank wall or space you need the perfect work for, send us a photo of it. Include some of the surrounding decor so we can get a good sense of things and we'll volley back samples that are perfectly you.
Whole Home or Office
There aren't many Artists available who can fill and entire complex with professional work diverse enough to feel like it's multiple creators. For some odd reason I'm one of them. We've done it many times, blessed by a special, like-minded and like-hearted collector base who see and believe in what's happening.
As you probably know, Corporate works can't say anything, but they can, and do, emote. The can create, foster or support any intended atmosphere. Power. Creativity. Globality. Elegance. Sophistication. Revolution. Rebellion. Integrity. Innovation. Perhaps something different for different spaces. I had one CEO that wanted everyone who came into his office to feel uncomfortable. Another hung a mugshot of Al Capone.
'When someone walks into this room, what do you want them to feel?' That's essentially where this one begins and ends, yet we still have to wade through inifinty to find the right work. Well studied in how visual languages affect the psyche, this type of commission is always a welcome challenge for me.
If you're going to live or work in a space for large portions of your life, it would seem intelligent to honor that space. Because of it's infinite nature, in order to move efficiently within the decorative processes, it's good to know your budget beforehand here.
