His art has been exhibited/performed at MoMA/PS1, The Walker Art Center, Pori Art Museum (Finland), BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and galleries and street corners across the country. He is a recipient of grants form Creative Capital Foundation and the Pollock Krasner Foundation, and his work is included in the collection of the Whitney Museum.
