The caravel ship was a 15th century sailing vessel used to traverse the high seas on voyages of discovery. Now in my own little corner of the world, Caravel serves as my creative quest to collect and curate visual wonders that inspire me as an artist, guiding my imagination on a colorful and amorphous adventure.
Visual curating is not only paramount to my craft as an Art Director, it is a slow medium that invigorates my creative tenacity. Weaving together imagery, music, motion and the written word, finding nuances in everyday observations, living a life of inquiry and curiosity, and embracing moments that are raw and unplanned are all parts of a bigger story that I feel burdened to tell.
Caravel is the convergence of my travels, my creative rituals and my illustrative inner child. From my quiet street in Brooklyn, I set sail to find the common threads, that once interwoven, transform into a wondrous tapestry of visual poetry that richly nourishes my artistic expression.
Iwant to unfold. I don’t want to stay folded anywhere, because where I am folded, there I am a lie. I want my grasp of things to be true. I want to describe myself like a painting that I looked at closely for a long time, like a saying that I finally understood, like a ship that carried me through the wildest storm of all.
- Rainer Mara Rilke
