Biography"My paintings display what is in me-tribal Africa crossed with urban blight." A lot of bad stuff went down in East New York when I was growing up. By layering the paint on the canvas, I am also layering the experience of what I saw: tragedy, loss, confusion, hope, prayer, fantasy, survival. "These things swirl around us all the time."

Heh ya..checke out your video..luved that space..!!! your work is soo immediate and it is great to see you painting...I for a moment beame part of your experience is that people luv to see one painting...grteat selling tool too because you involve others in an intimate part of self which is always a gift and establish a more intimate thinks anyways.....I luv working big, not knowing what I am going to do , paint with the whole body rather than just the upper part as with a smaller piece...really inspiring...the interactive thing..takes the academic out of it a bit!!! great stuff!! you deal with social realities in a confronting

Hi Nevet, Thank you for writting, you have great artworks, I really consider your artwork inspiring! Keep on! Best wishes Krisztina


Hi Nevet, yeah your art is well worth looking at in order to capture the angst you speak of. I have also encountered a piece of what you express so finely as a chronology of events, however my job was dealing with the conflict and picking up the rotten pieces. Keep shining, discovering.. aarts

Well, I don't really know how to loosen up, but I'm working on it. That's my goal.


I love the way you just get in there and paint, very bold and courages strokes. My favorite is "Village By The Sea". Keep up your hard work and thanks for sharing.


exellent works. Mike

Hi Steven, I think you must have a lot of fun while painting. I supose all artists do, but there is a big difference between mine and yours. I think it is evident in my work that I need to loosen up a bit, relax and have more fun. On the contrary, your work feels free and expressive. Keep me posted on the wrestling one. :) ~Marianne


Nice work. I got a chuckle out of "Paparazzi." Other pieces seem primal and archetypal and ageless. Some scream, some frighten, some arouse pathos. Great energy. Good luck with your exhibits! Bud
