Throughout Curtis' life, a sketchbook has never been very far away, whether in his bedroom as a child, on a submarine in the Navy, or on the set of a big Hollywood production. Whenever he was too limited in time or space to create boxes or to paint, he would draw.

Though he started with oil-based paints, Curtis switched to acrylics as soon as he discovered them. "Acrylics are an express subway, oils are a local," he muses.

His paintings address a broad range of subjects; lush, pattern-filled, multi-colored still lifes are a personal favorite. Heavy influences-from Picasso to Matisse-can be inferred, often with a single glance.

For the most part, Curtis is self-taught. He was invited to study with Jan Stussy at the University of California, Los Angeles and, though Curtis claims he was already "an old dog" by then, he did pick up a few new tricks. "He showed me perspective and distance," elaborates Curtis.

A major influence on Curtis was the late surrealist Salvador Dalí. The unique approach and rare talent that Dalí exhibited in all facets of his career captivated him. "He projected himself into the future," the actor-artist says. "That's what makes his paintings so desirable to me. I don't think there's as good an artist out there today."

The inherent vibrancy and vigor captured in Curtis' paintings belie a life of pain, heartache and loss. Curtis' life story is one of tragedy as well as triumph.

He admits that he frequently thinks of lost family and friends; it is obvious his works share an emotional connection to life events not long forgotten. Even as an adolescent, he reveals he used his art as a means of emotional catharsis.

"I started doing these boxes to calm myself," Curtis explains. "I would get so frustrated and angry, putting up with all of the madness of other people's behavior and the inequities that I saw around me."
