About

Creative Vice, the artist moniker of US Navy veteran Randy Morales, interprets nostalgic culture in his personal view of growing up in the 90s. Similar to his childhood the art is simplistic without an overload of text and other images. His original paintings are straight to the point with an almost rudimentary reference to child art.

This 36-inch high by 60-inch wide artwork is 2-inch deep. Morales used acrylic paint on canvas to create this original artwork. It is stretched, wired, and ready to hang. The artwork is signed by Morales on the front as "Creative Vice" and stamped on the back. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental US and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity issued by the gallery is included.

Morales has been creative all his life although he has not always had the opportunities to show his expressive range. He says, “Being a young African American and Puerto Rican male in Washington state - already being different from all the other kids - I chose to hide my creative side and just go forward with life day by day. I ended up in the military since I had no other plans in life and found myself doing creative things during my free time just to pass time.”

Each artwork includes his trademark equivocal face. The ambiguous face shows that even if the subject is nostalgic it doesn’t mean happy times. It could bring back memories of troubled youth or life-changing moments someone had as a kid. Overall his artwork caters to the younger generation who are getting in touch with their younger self at that moment In their life where they can start to afford finer things as well as the other consumers who spent time with their kids watching these shows and creating that bond.

After completing his military service and his degree from FIDM, Morales began as a fashion designer working for major fashion brands. It wasn’t until his TV broke that he had an artistic revelation, “TVs are meant to have pictures. Even though my TV was broken instead of just throwing it away, why not paint on it.” This sparked his venture into creating visual artworks from recycled materials and eventually creating original paintings on canvas.

US Navy veteran Randy Morales fuses nostalgia and graphic expressionism within his street-pop artworks. The choice of subjects within his artworks is strongly influenced by his experience growing up in the 90s. Carrying on the theme of feeling like an outsider much of his life, Morales focuses on characters that he would consider less “obvious” to the masses but more emotionally evocative to those who recognize them.

Morales has been creative all his life although he has not always had the opportunities to show his expressive range.
