Self-Portrait With Skull, Ink, 2015ABOUT

I am a nerd. I am an artist. An artist and a nerd, or a nerd and an artist. Depends on the situation.

I’ve always been interested in the middle-ground between my two “main identities”. How can I represent my nerdiness in art and vice versa? Where goes the line between fan-art and contemporary art? What is the divide between popular culture and art in today’s modern society, if it even exists?

“That’s the wonderful thing with nerds: they’re enthusiasts. Not having a life means you get to love things with a passion and nobody bothers you about it.”

-John Burnside, The Glister
