I first became interested in street art back in San Francisco in the early 90s with Barry McGee (Twist) and Ruby Rose Neri (Reminisce), two artists whose style stood out amongst the usual gang graffiti around the city. Twist would paint cartoonish faces on the metal roller shutters in the Mission and on Market Street. These faces were not like classical portrait art, but had a powerful style that was unmistakeable, distinct and beautiful. What was most interesting about these artists' work is that the city was their canvas and that their art changed an ordinary wall into something unique and special. Their art was like the modern day equivalent of a cave painting.
MYFINBEC enables me to reveal the people behind their art, through their own creative journey. Their struggle, their motives and inspirations can connect us to their art in a more meaningful and insightful way. I don't work with many artists, but I do try to find the ones that invoke the same feeling in me I had when I first saw Barry McGee's work. For me, having quintessential style is paramount.
What I want to accomplish with this project is to evolve the concept and continually change how art is exhibited, and to keep the art experience intriguing for those that attend our shows. This is why producing unorthodox art exhibitions is so important, and why I have gravitated towards new technologies like virtual reality to reinvent how people can experience an art show. If I can work with artists that when I wake up, I can't wait to get to work to shoot a video, create a concept and produce a show, then I am on my intended path.
