ARTIST STATEMENT: As a DJ samples and remixes musical pieces to create something new, our collaborative paintings transform and remix our lives through the making of art. Drawing from hip hop, music culture, art history, literature, vintage advertising and modern graphic aesthetics, we strive to convey a sense of drama and the poetry of existence. Our primary goal is to celebrate greatness by creating of works of art that are accessible to multiple perspectives and interpretations. Our creative will wills it. "The unifying characteristic of their work is a concentrated use of color, patterns and precision, a minimalist tendency that favors the clear and bold note over that of an erratic symphony. As the married couple will admit, their debt to Pop Art and graphic design is evident, but in a strange way, their paintings have always reminded me of the stained glass windows of Frank Lloyd Wright, or what he might have created had he spent his life under a California sun, listening to hip hop with a book of poetry in one hand and a glossy magazine in the other." -Austin Duerst, Conversations 2013AD
