These illustrative paintings have been shown in solo and group exhibitions in New York City and Miami. He has been a featured artist on such websites as Artslant, Gawker Artists, Brooklyn Art Project, and Art Flakes. His artwork has been featured on 1800 Tequilla bottles, skateboards, snowboards, and T-Shirts.
