Gooey’s passion for creating visually engaging, imaginative and compelling art is rooted in the belief that art can be a game changer for people, making positive impacts in their daily lives and therefore changing how we all coexist.
Coming from a filmmaking and photography background, Gooey understands the power of stories and how everyone has a unique story to tell. With the professional experience acquired working in the entertainment and advertising industry, Gooey’s approach to fine art and public art is unique. As a storyteller himself, translating concepts, abstract ideas, and feelings ideas into a tangible reality is what Gooey tries to achieve with his artwork.
Having collaborated with some of the biggest agencies and brands in the world, studios and networks has given him a 360 perspective of how to create and develop art that is meaningful and powerful for audiences all around the world.
Gooey’s art is inspired by many artists like Keith Haring, Miro, Roy Lichtenstein, Ai Wei Wei, De Kooning, Gabriel Orozco, Gottlieb, Gorky, Motherwell, Turrell Kaws and Shepard Fairey.
Gooey believes that art can change the world and make it a better place.
What kind of public art project do I want to work on?
One public art project that I have in mind is a community gathering of local residence within the Coachella valley appreciating the young talent of aspiring artists in our city’s. I would like to put on a collective show of all aspiring young artists within the Coachella Valley to display their words and their passions for the arts. I know multiple musicians artists and photographers all of which are aspiring to become successful artists. Being young and with little funds it’s very hard to find a creative space where you can display your artwork and have people appreciate your passion.
