I grew up during the transition from analog to digital. I’ve discovered my affection for the 1990s as an adult through social media, movies, and TV drama. Many programs depicting that decade are still popular today. And pre-internet television continues to be my favorite form of entertainment. The TV shows that I watched when I was a kid are evident in my paintings, a reflection of false memories in my unconscious mind. Specifically, I bring the vibes of City Pop, a synth-laden subset of old Japanese pop music and related videos, into my paintings. My images evoke nostalgia for the recent past, as grainy VHS-grade images meet the retro mood of Japanese anime.
