VNDL:  Describe your work/process:

BK:  Always looking to hit upon a concept first. Ideas are king! Process takes second fiddle. From start to finish the concept will dictate the direction of my work. With an image in mind, my aim is to figure out the quickest road towards the final artwork. I have a short attention span and don’t want to dwell in the craft. I guess I’m lazy in that way, lol.

What have you been up to recently? (trips, projects, work?)

My focus has been in growing the brand my partners and I have been slaving over the past three years, Art of Basketball. We have a license from the NBA to create authentic artworks related to the game. We use the official NBA backboard and wood basketball court as canvases for a tight group of artists to interpret.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I want to continue to paint and curate exiting exhibitions. I hope to be doing that in five, ten and twenty years from now.

Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for?

Marcel Duchamp is my hero. Andy Warhol is my inspiration. Cindy Sherman is my favorite girl. DADA For breakfast, POP for lunch and Conceptual Portraits for dinner.
