BORN1985

Leave a comment
Inspiration

My latest project has been an ongoing work-in-progress. Over the past year, I have been taking small steps towards one larger goal. The project is called Born1985. It builds on the essence of surprise, mischief, humor and curiosity. I’ve been analyzing my connection to objects and how those connections stem from human nature. The object I am making feel like commercial products but they are designed in an artistic way that allude to raw and simple human […]

Drawings / Inspiration

Lately I have been asking myself why I continue to draw. I have slowed down on the amount of personal art work I do because of the time and effort my job requires. But for some reason I still like to take a few minutes a week to draw. The exercise of drawing by hand has become a bit of a  habit. Although I don’t go through sketchbooks as quickly as I used to, I […]

    I showed drawings, a painting and the Tripod Stool at the RAW Artists Event here in Tucson last week. I don’t have nearly enough free time to do many events so I took this opportunity to show a variety of pieces. These are some of the small projects I have been up to in last 6 months. The painting is a slightly abstracted depiction of a shoe lace. It is painted in acrylic […]

The opening for Almost True last saturday was a lot of fun. Lulubell is one of the absolute coolest places in Tucson, without a doubt! I am really happy to be a part of another exhibit at the gallery. I am currently showing the shoelace painting, Delusions of Grandeur and the 4 foot tall butterfly knife, Friendly Conversation. My working process has really slowed down since I started school. I am enjoying the classes I’m taking, […]

No Fine Line

I have continuously questioned my desire of the things I want. I have noticed, in myself and others, that many of us develop habits from our wish to have things. Over-spending, selfishness, obsession, and addiction can drastically affect the way a person lives his or her life. There was a time in life where desire was simple. A blanket or stuffed animal could put us to sleep. My artwork reflects on the transition of simple, innocent desires to negative, obsessive desires. I work around this […]

New Perspective

Inspiration

A vacation can be a great way to open up one’s mind to new creative posabilities. I had the chance to fly to San Francisco for my birthday and I came home with a slighly new perspective on things. As an artist, I am very critical of my own work. I often forget to value the small yet important things throughout my work process.  I think that in life, we forget to value the things around us and […]

Interview

I was recently a featured artist on ARTST.com and was asked to be a part of a short interview for www.WebUrbanist.com. I was happy to tell about what inspired me. I was surprised to learn a bit about myself in the process. The questions really made me think from a different perspective. I was excited to hear the news yesterday that the story posted, titled, The Incredible Childhood Inspired Artwork of Adan Banuelos. “When asked who he most looks up […]

I’ve been working at Creative Machines for a few years now. I have the luck to work at an awesome shop where a lot of interesting interactive machines and artwork are made.  This is the piece, Toby, which is downtown on Scott Ave. Theres always something interesting going on here at work. This is one of the projects I’ve had the opportunity to work on. I welded, assembled and tested this piece. It is 1 of 100, […]
