ART VS. PEOPLE SERIES —
This series originated when the artist went to a museum and noticed that these days people are taking photographs of art with their phones and taking selfies with art but it seemed like nobody was really spending time just closely looking at art.
As a result, he started creating paintings of people vs. art that make the viewer ask questions about art. What is art? How does it create meaning? Does art change or even exist without us looking at it? Why do we go to museums to look at it? What makes art good? Do we need it to survive! What does a work of art make me think and feel? And most importantly, would this work of art look good over my sofa?”
