Sherman Burks

New Rochelle, NY, US



I am an professional artist. Who graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Animation and received an associate degree in Visual Arts from Westchester Community College.
Through my education and work experience, I have mastered the production process of computer graphics, multimedia, 2D and 3D animation as well as traditional art techniques in drawing, wood sculpture, stage design, and painting with oils and acrylics. I have a wide range of work experience in the visual arts area that includes working with children as well as working with architects in designing buildings and worked on other high profile architectural projects that cant be announced by me. My main aspirations are to get my master degree in architecture, so I can build some thing new, inspirational and lasting for future generations and to create my own hip-hop animated feature film with friends. In the past couple of years I have been pursuing a fine arts career by entering in gallery shows around the New York region. I started painting seriously when I entered college and found it to be a great outlet for expression. A lot of my paintings reflect movement or a action of some kind this is most likely due to my animation background. I dedicated myself to the visual arts for my entire life with expression, passion and diligence. And because of that I will always overcome adversities.
