Feature: A COLOR GREEN

Invalid Displayed Gallery

Name: A COLOR GREEN
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Start Date: I can’t put an exact date to when I start creating my own art and actually referred to it as that, but it was maybe around 13, 14. I was one of those kids who’d spend days in front of a lego set, inventing my own cartoon world. As soon as I was old enough my parents introduced me to film and I’d end up spending half of the 90′s roaming the aisles of Blockbuster. Eventually my folks got me a camcorder and I’d shoot spoofs on just about any History or English assignment, handing that in instead of a powerpoint or traditional presentation. At the same time I’d always drawn and taken art classes. When I got to college and enrolled in film school I finally began bringing all of the different mediums together. A Color Green was the result.
Influence: Stanley Kubrick. Anyone who knows me will at some point in our contact listen to a never ending rant about Kubrick so I’ll just get it out of the way now. He’s the greatest American filmmaker of all time (if not the greatest all together) and an unrecognized genius. That said, it was actually the gritty, Black & White photography he did at the start of his career for Look Magazine that was a big influence. I imagined them as this ‘hint’ to his creative process and used that to guide my early B&W work, focus on contrast and composition. Even as I stray more and more-so into illustration and design I have an odd connection to those real-life, NY-street scenes and the Kubrick mastery over the creative process. Also of notable mention might be: 90′s nickelodeon, Federico Fellini and Quasimoto.
Effect: Bring back film, cinema or whatever you want to call it. At the same time I don’t feel a sole connection to one medium. I’d love to continue working across multiple planes. I’d like Mr. Green to be as recognizable as Larry David and I’d also like to franchise a chain of experiential green-friendly movie theaters or just become a hermit in Estonia.
Long run: Bigger pieces of art on bigger canvases and bigger buildings. Turning the short to series, films to features and collaborating with as many talented artists as possible. A Nobel Prize would be cool too.
