John Paul Fauves:
“I have painted since I can remember , I now understand that this passion for art is the soul trying to express through colors and strokes. My inspiration comes from the Fauvist movement.

This being an individualistic style that lacks a classical order , and which in turn uses color to communicate feelings . Expressionism is clearly my interpretation of Art.”I think that art is the expression of the soul. In the “mickey me” collection the artist represents the loss of innocence in the human being.

The Hedonist Mickey is a figure that seeks pleasure no matter the consequence. Mickey being a world wide iconic figure of innocence, represents the hedonist life style we have all being tempted. In this mad world sometimes just one bad choice can guide you to a dark hallway, were you will never find the way out. In defy gravity the destiny of Marilyn Monroe was death here innocence was lost and could never get it back.”
