    Artist Statement:

    "I love semantics! English was my second language and I am still discovering all of its nuances and possibilities of wordplay. I use materials from dollar, hardware, and thrift stores. The cheaply made kitschy aesthetic of mass-produced novelties and everyday utilitarian items serve as simple and straightforward vessels to deliver visual punch lines that touch base on issues such as cultural identity and the complexities of linguistics.

    Subtlety is key. Just ask Lil Wayne: “… real G’s move in silence like lasagna…”- “6 Foot 7 Foot”, featuring Cory Gunz”

    Berlin photographed by Kevin Gavidia.

    I had the pleasure of visiting the wonderful city of Berlin last week and it was quite incredible. I was equipped with my analog camera and a few rolls of colored 35mm film. Berlin is one of those cities that I just keep on wanting to go back to because there is this relationship that has been built between us. Even though I have only been there twice, there is this understanding that we have for each other. It’s very strange to compare yourself to a city but Berlin and I are in similar stages of our ‘lives.’ This city was destroyed, and from destruction it was rebuilt to what stands today. Youth is a theme in this city because Berlin is young, and that is why this city attracts me. It is a part of life to occasionally crumble, but it also is a part of life to get back up when you do crumble. When I walk the streets of Berlin, I am surrounded by hope. I am able to see a city that stands tall and proud after destruction. I walk down the streets and smile because in the inside, I understand what it feels like to fall on your face, and get right back up. (Posted by Kevin)
