VJ Comando
New York, NY
Neighborhood: Flatbush



ARTIST STATEMENT: My digital paintings are narratives that typically tell a story using graffiti tags as a unifying factor. I simplify areas of my composition and focus on the areas that push the narrative. I use color in the same way, saturating parts of importance in the painting, directing the viewer’s eye toward those subjects. In my work, I deal with flow and color in a figurative setting. Calling upon my memories as a graffiti artist, gestural and calligraphic aspects permeate my work. Using these gestures subliminally, the tags, as expressive brush strokes form a uniquely textured image. Energetic and dynamic, my work speaks to a contemporary urban, experience. In my work, I often set up a surrealistic tableau, albeit with a contemporary take. Figures and objects subsequently interact in unexpected ways. I accomplish this by using shift of scale, extreme perspective and stark contrast. Ideas such as the relationship between man and machine as well as the juxtaposition of the old and the new inform my work. I draw upon imagery of my childhood, growing up in my old neighborhood in Brooklyn and the evanescent memories of that experience; shades of a world that no longer exists. At times ambiguous, the narrative within my work allows my viewer to enter into a world of idiosyncratic associations. With only a vague suggestion as a guide, the viewer is free to perceive the work in the context of their own memories and draw conclusions based upon their past experiences.
