Made with spray paint, gold and silver leaf, and Sharpie Mean Streak markers, his lively images often combine graffiti lettering with Japanese motifs such as samurais, geishas, dragons, tigers, and fish.  He received a BA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles and an MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has exhibited internationally, and his work is in the collections of the Hammer Museum at UCLA, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, The Toledo Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Blanton Museum of Art to name a few.

Took a Spanish language class with 24 students on a self-guided tour of this exhibit. It was a great way to get them to express their reactions and they wrote very good essays about it.
