"My practice is centered around the forward progression of my aesthetic. I am on the artists’ journey of discovery, the forever student. My self study of art history, architecture, and design merge with my roots in graffiti art to create a unique visual language that can traverse from medium to medium. My vocabulary is contour, form, process, innovation, and dynamic movement. Through a stream of conscious and unconscious decisions my inner dialogue renders finished works. My process of channeling music is intrinsic to all of my work; it acts as a catalyst connecting emotions and rhythms, transforming them into form and composition. By engaging in both tactile and digital mediums it is my goal to make the art of my time." - Michael Walsh
