Artist, Musician, Designer
Born: June 15, 1967 - Miami, FL. USA
ART: My mind is constantly being barraged by images, scenes and new ideas. My insatiable appetite for personal discovery is the driving force behind the continuous obsession to create new and challenging works of art. As a self taught artist, I developed a unique style of painting which has evolved throughout the years . Throughout my career as an artist, I have produced over 1000 paintings many of which have been exhibited in several galleries, in Florida, New York and Valencia, Spain. My recent works (2011 - present) are products of experimentation with several different mediums such as acrylics, epoxy, resin, fiber glass, poly coat and natural elements such as stone, tile and wood on ply boards and wooden panels to create 3D image paintings. These works can be viewed at: www.ddzart.com.
MUSIC: From 2011 to 2017, I abandoned my paintbrush and started recording original music. As the front man, vocalist, for the band Core, from 1992 - 1998, and for several other bands until the end of 2009, I discovered the deep rooted passion in the power of music. Never having learned to master an instrument, the possibility of producing music and creating songs all on my own seemed an unachievable task. Persistency and an unwillingness to fail produced results. In the summer of 2011 with only a laptop a microphone and many lonely nights spent in hotel rooms around the state of Florida, I created The Acid Bat Project. My first "official" album Funk Lounge was released several years after. To date, The Acid Bat Project has produced 6 albums and has recorded over 100 original songs.
