This is Adnan Ravzi, a Dallas-area artist with works currently on display at WAAS Gallery's 'AMERICAN PAINTING NOW' Exhibit. In his words: 'I enjoy creating Post-Modern Pop Art paintings that integrate solid text with images. Using bright colors and eye-catching repetitive imagery, I use elements of organic collage, graffiti, and pop art. My work explores identity and relation, especially in regards to humanities role in chaos and conflict.'
