On the official website of Love also known as Lovetheartistlove. It al started when I was a kid and saw my dad drawing boats at church. The impact it made that a person can create something out of nothing was a thing that stuck. At a very young age I started to draw everything what my eyes could capture: people, animals and settings. My mom was also very creative and made everything like clothes but also abstract paintings and sculptures. During my young life I played soccer with friends and lots of videogames. Skateboaring became a later obsession to me wich fulled the fire of graphics and branding. Unfortunately life happend and I had a troubled mind and find my rescue in wrong things like drugs and parties. After being arrested and molested by the police I had enough of my life and the style of living. I asked my god how can I change my ways... I found myself back in art and never I looked back. Ten years ago, on trip in Lisboa Portugal I saw an street art artist who made a mural in a skatehop with lots of black outlines. It was for the first time I got an actual idea for my identity as an artist. I came home and I started to create the ideas I had. I used old teqniues to combine it with the new black oulines out the pop/streetart movement to create a new way of working without losing the essens or just trying to replicated old images. While I was working everyday for 8 hours on my techniques I started to explore the presentation of the works. My grandfather also an painter always said: The frame makes the work. I took me a while to understand what he was saying but after a while I discovered the power of an frame and what it does to the work. I designed an frame that fit with every style I created and white was the perfect "color" for it. Now ten years later I am ready to present my works to you as my audience and hopefully you will Love the works as mutch like i did while I was creating it. That is why i called myself LOVE because without it I was not around to give it back to you.
Special thanks to my family for all the love and support.
