Religion and art have gone hand and hand since the beginning of time. Although I am not religious and lean toward Atheism and being Agnostic I do still enjoy to play with the iconic Jesus image. My “GANGSTA JESUS” is a very powerful image that gets a lot of attention. That is pretty much the reason why I created it. I love peoples reaction to it and specially love when bible thumpers don’t like it or say “I don’t know how I feel about it”. Art is supposed to make the viewer have a reaction and that is the beauty of it.
