“WHATS HAPPENING BROTHER”

  

THE RECENT SENSELESS MURDERS OF BLACK MAN BY THE HAND OF THE SUPPOSED JUST AND THE FACT THAT NO REAL JUSTICE CAN BE GIVEN TO THESE MURDERED BLACK KINGS. I THINK TO MYSELF WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON IN THIS CRAZY WORLD RIGHT NOW. THE HOBO SIGNS REPRESENTS BELONGING TO A CERTAIN GROUP OF OUTCASTS AND HAVING A WAY OF TALKING AND UNDERSTANDING THAT THE NORM THE CONFORMIST THE SUPREMIST CANT TRULY GRASP AND UNDERSTAND. I PARRALELL THAT WITH THE NEGRO MAN BECAUSE THEY HAVE MANY SIMILARITIES IN THAT RESPECT. THE FIGURE REPRESENTS THE NEWEST BLACK MAN KILLED BY THE LIKES OF A COP IN 2015 IT SOUNDS CLEASHAE BUT I REALLY WISH BLACK MEN WERENT DEMONIZED AND PROFILED IN SUCH A WAY.  THIS PIECE WAS DONE WITH SPRAY PAINT AND OIL STICK ON CANVAS. HOPE YOU ENJOY.

“SHADES OF”

SHADES OF IS AN UNPLANNED COLLABORATION BETWEEN ME AND A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE CALVIN. LAST NIGHT I HAD TO COVER AN ART EXHIBITION FOR MUSEE MAGAZINE AT THE SAFARI GALLERY ON WEST BROADWAY IN SOHO WEHN I ASKED MY BOY TO ROLL. HE GREATLY OBLIGED AND THE NIGHT HAD BEGUN. AFTER WE HAD OUR FILL OF THE EVENT WE DECIDED TO TAKE A WALK AWAY FROM SOHO JUST TO GET AWAY FROM SOME OF THE YUPPIE STENCH THAT FLOATS THROUGH THE AIR WHEN YOU ARE AROUND THERE. SMOOTHLY ENOUGH WE ENDED UP IN CHINATOWN WHICH IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO SCORE SOME GRUB SEE TRIPPY SHIT AT NIGHT THAT CAN BE EITHER VISUALLY ALLURING OR A BIT DISTURBING. IN ANY EVENT I FELT AT HOME WITH ALL THE DARK ALLEYS AND BROKEN STREET LIGHTS. WE DECIDED TO POST UP ON A BLOCK THAT WAS JUST BASICALLY A DESERTED ALLEY. I FORGET THE STREET BUT THERE IS WHERE I JUST RANDOMLY DECIDED TO PLAY WITH SOME BLACK AND WHITE VISUALS OF MY BOY. IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT THE VISUALS DISPLAYED THAT GRIT AND SENSE OF TOTAL REALISM THAT THESE CHINATOWN STREETS POSESS. IT WAS DARK AND GRIMY AND A BIT SUS SO CHECK IT OUT AND STAY TUNED FOR MY NEXT PROJECT.

FRIENDS OF CAMMY

 

FRIEND OF MY CAMERA, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WHO I DIG.I LOVE PORTRAITURE AND LOVE THE EMOTIONS I SEE LONG AFTER A FILM PHOTO IS TAKEN, ONCE THE VISUAL IS DEVELOPED AND YOU SEE THE EMOTIONS IN THE PEOPLE YOU SHOT IT REALLY IS REWARDING. SO MANY TIMES EMOTIONS AND MOMENTS ARE ALLUDING US AT EVERY BLINKING MOMENT, ITS NICE TO HAVE SOME OF THOSE TIMES FROZEN FOEVER.
