“All tools and mediums from graffiti to fine arts is used to build what are essentially are the expressions of a self taught, New Yorker Conflicted. I don’t know what kind of relationship other painters have with their work but for me at least, I create somewhere on the cusp of explosive frustration and the compulsive desire to be understood through what is the makings of my subconscious. I often don’t realize how much of my actual identity Bleeds through my work until the piece is complete and sometimes even beyond that.”

“Raised half my life in the South Bronx And the other half in Lower Manhattan In a Dominican house hold my experience in the City has been quite polarizing. The internal clash of cultures living in me has always been interesting to observe as I often see how impactful the access to art is. Among other things Mental health has come to shape me as an artist considering I was diagnosed with schizophrenia at 20 years old. From roaming the streets half insane. From heart breaking losses, being homeless, living like a social outcast for almost a year to having my works sold at my actual asking price, I truly want anyone reading this to identify what they love and to persist relentlessly” – Ray @everything.stopped
