Family Man

"Memories of my father became the central focus and driving influence for my body of work. In 2011, my Dad passed away after a prolonged battle with bowel cancer, at the age of 42. This event has significantly shaped my life and personal values, as I desire to continually portray the best version of myself in the short life we have. Thus, I wanted to create a tribute to his undeniable presence in my life and a memorial displaying his beautiful values as he became the Family Man. My work captures a glimpse of pivotal moments and symbolic memories, primarily involving myself, that embody his charismatic and passionate nature. Through my body of work, I attempted to powerfully demonstrate and effectively showcase his involvement in my life, both past and present."
