Untitled – krystalthegem

Why did you pick this picture? 

I chose this piece because it’s most representative of my style at the moment.

Where did the idea for this art come from?

I don’t always have a plan when I start painting. Sometimes I’ll just grab a few different colors and see if they work well together. I’m very experimental with my art. With this piece I was running low on paint, but I knew I had enough metallic gold so I used colors I thought went well with it.

What does this art mean to you?

I aim to evoke emotion with my art. When I look at this painting, the bright colors make me feel excited and energetic.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I was born on the island of St. Croix, but I’ve lived in South Texas for most of my life. Despite being born with cerebral palsy, I try to live my life to the fullest and I hope to inspire other people with disabilities.

What more can you tell us about your art?
I started painting as a way to cope with mental illness. There’s something very therapeutic about creating abstract art. I love bringing different colors and textures together to make something beautiful.
