Black Boot

Black Boot's works mimic pages of a diary or journal and are a documentary of sorts of daily encounters in real life and online. His artistic influences come from the the simplistic power of Keith Harring, the serialism of Andy Warhol, the colors of Mark Rothko and the the outlines of Valerio Adami.

The heavy outlines are a reference to those seen in coloring books which are the boundaries for the color; just as the rules, regulations and laws delegate our behavior and social interactions as adults.

The artist's minimal portraits are done in a way to give only a suggestion of what is taking place. On the carton pieces the unpainted spaces of the figure expose the natural color of the carton to create a skintone. This leaves the figure as the negative space in the image creating a juxtaposition of negative and positive components of the composition. In the works on wood, the collage elements also give vague clues to his narratives.
