Randy Patton, Albuquerque Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement I have always created art as a way of communicating my idea's and emotions. The inspiration for my paintings comes from my real life, the influence of my style comes from anime. I use spray paint as the main ingredient in my paintings to achieve a look and feel similar to, but not a recreation of anime. I consider some anime to be a true art form. I think it can be mesmerizing, compelling and very skillfully created. I wanted to incorporate a similar look and feel into my own work. The perfect medium for expressing the feelings, emotions and mysteries of my life.
