The Story Behind the Work
For Al, art should be an interactive experience. It should evoke emotions, raise questions, promote self-reflection and tell a narrative that immerses one in the story.
With his Rock Music Icon paintings and his Renegades series, Al hopes to challenge the viewer to dig past an image of a famous face and into a deeper understanding of each artist represented.
Al creates original “one-off” pieces of art, which displays the musician or actor in an iconic pose that is truly distinctive to that individual. Al hopes that his work promotes conversation, as people search to make their own meaning behind the piece, while at the same time forming a connection with each work of art.
