Workshops and Exhibition in Florence
Learn drawing and painting while adding your voice to the #metoo discussion.
Hi! I’m very excited to announce that I will lead a series of workshops which will culminate in a show at Onart Gallery, Florence. While I share techniques and ideas for making powerful paintings and drawings, we will produce works on the topic of #metoo.
Elon Musk (PAYPAL, TESLA ETC. ) said “I do these things because I don’t want to look at the future and feel sad.” I have a vision of a future where our children can feel safer from rape and abuse, and I want to challenge other men to participate: we are the ones who need to change.
