Calligrafitti

I am a native New Yorker who worked for Empire State Development, New York State's economic development arm of the Governor's office. I  opened the first office of Trade ad Investment in Istanbul, Turkey. While in Turkey,  I fell in love with Ottoman calligraphy. My work is a fusion of both Ottoman Calligraphy and New York Grafitti with a mix of Nordic symbols due to my travels to Norway, the UK, and other countries.  Some of my paintings have writings in 20 languages - from Hebrew to Russian, Turkish, Thai, Arabic, Greek, Kannada, Burmese, Hindi, and dialects of other languages.
