DB: please could you tell us briefly about your background?
AB: I’m a contemporary visual artist with a focus primarily on public art, painting, sculpture and site-specific installation work. I’ve been creating paintings and drawings ever since I was very young. my parents had a background in interior design and architecture and they also studied art in college which I think contributed to my wanting to be creative early on. they pushed public television and reading and I remember being inspired by the things I would see on PBS or read in a book. a also really liked the illustrations I saw in children’s books that we had around the house growing up. I didn’t really start thinking about having a career in art until high school. in 1992 I discovered graffiti and I basically through myself into the world of working outdoors and on multiple surfaces. I studied art at virginia commonwealth university briefly and dropped out to peruse my work in the street. in 2000 I got a job working at an art publishing company which had an in house art studio full of all the materials I would need to experiment with. I worked for the company for several years developing works for them and for myself, while simultaneously going out to paint the streets at night. I learned about scale and working outdoors through exterior street work and I learned about painting and developing my studio practice by working with the company. I always took on my own projects or exhibitions on the side and got to a point of being busy enough to shift my focus entirely to having my own studio.
