Caiphus _, Miami Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement Caiphus has spent most of his professional career creating award winning artwork for the video game industry. Overcome by the love of painting, he has returned to South Florida to pursue his dream of becoming a renowned painter and visionary. The art of Caiphus is enchanting, direct and loaded with hidden metaphors and subtle puns: easily digested by the eyes but always leaving the brain searching for the true meaning. A graduate of the Maryland Institute, College of Art, Caiphus has always been inspired by the natural human form. He creates on a variety of mediums; from traditional canvas, film, animation and custom designed sneakers. His art can be seen in video games, album covers, apparel and on gallery walls. An avid traveler, Caiphus can be found sketching in the rain forests of Costa Rica to the Giant Buddha in Lantau, Hong Kong. He sees the beauty in the world and strives to apply that same imagery to his paintings.
