Here is one of many newish artist bios. I like this one:
After receiving degrees in engineering and philosophy of science, I learned to screen print in the Mission in order to fabricate forty postcards and meet women.
Some years later I am married and operating a small screen print studio on Harrison Street.
The ultimate goal of my art practice is to extend the aesthetic, collaborative, and social possibilities of screenprinting. My projects have ranged from a screenprinted mural depicting the Mission District (installed in the office of SF District 9 Supervisor David Campos), to a 600ft2 screenprinted floor fabricated for Just Theater’s 2011 production of “Down A Little Dirt Road” by Erin Bregman.
In addition to pursuing a consistent studio schedule devoted to producing new work, I consider community service and interdisciplinary collaborations essential to my art practice. I spent two summers, in collaboration with activist Adrienne Skye Roberts co-developing and teaching a 6-week hybrid math-art class for underserved high schoolers at U.C.Berkeley. Students learned math through hands-on studio art projects, culminating in a exhibition of their work at the Oakland Museum of Children’s Art. Other community collaborations include screenprint workshops at Rocks Paper Scissors, CELLspace, Root Division, and Glide Memorial Church, and partnerships with community-minded businesses on screenprint projects including signs, parklets, and installations.
I am currently interested in expanding the orbit of my work towards other creative disciplines through direct collaborations with writers, filmmakers, and actors, with a focus on text, storytelling, and wordplay. My immediate plans include vastly expanding the scale of my screenprinted motion pictures, through a collaboration with Paul Cello (director: 2×4 theater company). In July 2013, I am curating “Character Profile”, a cross disciplinary group show at Root Division in San Francisco that will explore intersections between the form, mechanics and meaning of language.
