The masks I make are a reflection of our modern culture through an ageless tradition, from my vantage point as a supporter, participant and believer in Hip-Hop culture. Masks create and conceal identities, they can possess you or chase the demons away, throughout history they have been used in rituals & rites of passage, others are status symbols and objects of desire. Ritual is a ghost our modern eyes look for but don’t recognize, we are unaware of our daily practice. It is said “We are what we worship”, who are you deities?
