"It is important to me that a work of art be constantly elusive, mean many different things to many different people. My work is always on its way between one point and another. What I care most about is its living possibilities.
The only defense against being trapped in someone's idea of your intention is to keep changing your field and work very hard, so that the fact of your creation, which will always be the most important thing, always overshadows its interpretation."
- Claes Oldenburg, 1961

THH70 was born in human form in 1970 in Los Angeles, California, but the persona of his nom de plume was conceived in 1994 as a stage name for his other career as a recording artist. He is now an accomplished visual artist, with his works in private and corporate collections on every continent. Since 2000, he has sold over 1300 original mixed media pieces, and his website— www.thh70online.com—continues to receive thousands of hits per month. To date, THH70 has shown in solo and group shows in galleries and museums across the United States and the Caribbean, and has appeared in print and online publications worldwide.
THH70 is recognized for his unique artistic approach that he has branded “Lo-Fi Urban Contemporary,” combining crude painterly techniques and utilizing materials and media (that include everything from acrylics and spray paint to household products like Windex and X-14 mildew remover) with his own style of raw illustration and stream-of-consciousness linguistics.
In 2001, sensing the online absence of a hub for like-minded artists to collectively exhibit their work, THH70 created AOA: Alternative Online Artists, an online, juried collective of approximately 30 artists. Since being founded, AOA has selected and maintained a roster of the nation’s most diverse and prolific alternative artists (with styles encompassing Pop, Outsider, Graffiti, Fluxus, Dada, Contemporary, Modern, Lowbrow, Urban, Abstract, Graphic Design, and Folk). The waves made by AOA artists continue to crash upon the art world, almost a decade later.
In late 2005, THH70 was interviewed (and appeared in) “America’s Chemical Angels,” a documentary by filmmaker Oxana Chumak about the overmedication of children with ADD/ADHD. In addition to the interview footage, THH70’s seminal 2002 painting RITALIN® is featured prominently in the film, as well as in its promotional advertising.
2007: gallery hiatus.
2008: a busy year with multiple shows and appearances, showing of work alongside some of Contemporary Art’s finest. Also in 2008: the release of THH70’s self-published monograph THH70: an exploration of text, imagery, and other crazy shit , this a 94-page full-color book containing a selection of more than 100 paintings spanning the previous 3 years. In ’08, THH70 also became a contributing editor to Mad Skills Magazine, an online arts & culture magazine in Europe.
2009 saw THH70’s participation in an Obama-themed art exhibit in the Dominican Republic, where our hero was the only artist to be specially commissioned for his work in this show containing scores of works by internationally-renowned artists. In September 2009, five THH70 paintings were exhibited in a museum retrospective at The Contemporary Art Center of Virginia, which runs thru January 2010 and has already received massive critical acclaim. And in 2010, THH70 will be featured in the book “Designing Obama,” a 360-page book chronicling the grassroots art movement spawned by the 2008 Presidential Election and written by Scott Thomas, the Design Director of the historic campaign.
THH70 divides his time between Dallas, Texas and Los Angeles, CA.
