What do you want people to take away from your show?

Overall I want people to take away two things. The first is this sense of chaos as to what to start with first; the collage; the portraits; the textures, and just dive deep into each piece. This is the perfect time to just spend hours exploring all of the pieces together and there are some real surprises in this show. The second thing I want people to take away is a sense of inspiration. At the end of the day that is what all artists are trying to do; to inspire ordinary people to express themselves in unique and artistic ways…..For More Visit (HERE)

Explain the concept behind “Friends with Knives Show”?
The entire concept behind the “Friends with Knives” show is ultimately about diversity. When I was approached to curate a stencil group show through DirtyPilot.com. I wanted to have stencil artists that really cover a wide range of styles. We are all individuals and have taken the fundamentals from cutting thick pieces of cardboard with a kitchen knife to making beautiful works of art……
“As stencil artists we have a common bond and we know the hardships and struggles that come with the work that we do. The process of cutting stencils can be grueling but at the same time it is extremely difficult to gain respect and admiration for the huge amount of work and dedication that we put in from the art world at large.” -PaperMonster

Also, I want to send a HUGE thanks to everyone who covered the show on sites all over!!

:::Via SensesLost.com:::

“One of my major goals is to inspire and motivate new people to do what I did in taking a risk and an active role to ultimately share what they can create to the world.”-PaperMonster

“With each painting that travels around the world I can’t physically be there next to it at all times to explain what it means but I want the audience to create their own stories and interpretations of what they see and share their love for my work with other people. One of my favorite things is to receive emails or messages from people that truly love what I do and share it with students they teach or their friends. That is when you know that your art has power and really matters.”-PaperMonster
