Some black guy is actually a piece I created that inspired another piece of mine titled
Some black guy comes as a reaction and total disrespect of the black mans body.. His body isn’t worth anything. He has no real identity. Society views him as sometimes an entertainer, sometimes a genius, sometimes even a father but at the end of the night. His name appears on your tv screen. You don’t bother to remember because you see this everyday. Some black guy killed again. They look at the mysterious circumstances that made him who he is. They wait for him to explode so they can revert back to what they have trained themselves to know. Oh yea Antonio I think his name is I’m not sure I forgot.. Doesn’t matter he’s just “some black guy”
Some black guy is done in mixed media on 8×10 canvas.
Comes from certain feelings one has about himself as an artist as a black man and as a vessel of culture so to speak.. I am not interested in labels or movements. I consider myself nothing.. I am nothing.. Just some black guy. A nobody.. But when I leave this place I hope my art will be helpful to young men and women and I hope it symbolizes the fact that a black man who is considered nothing sometimes in society can be something actually.. Something much more.
This piece is 16×20 on canvas done in a mixed media technique I call nothing. Hope you dig it and I hope some of my thoughts and sentences that run through my head spark some discussion in your mind.
This piece is about the colored man. Mysterious he is. What motivates him to go on despite the fact his color makes him a target in society. What rules has society put in place for the colored man to follow ?
Walk this way, talk this way, be accepted by your counterparts. My colored man accept the gold Ora that surrounds you. Listen to the stories of your ancestors colored man. Search for the truth don’t let it find you. Have a curious mind. Be vigorous in your attempt to show the world that the world isn’t just black and white it’s more then that. It’s about all the colors.
This piece is the first piece I have completed for 2016 and is a symbol of the type of pathway I’m trying to reach within myself and with the people. Done in oil stick, acrylic paint and oil pastels.
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.
IM PROUD TO UNVEIL MY NEWEST EXPRESSION I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON FOR SOME TIME NOW AND IS FINALLY COMPLETED. I CALL IT “LES EXPRESSIONISTS PENSE” IT IS A PIECE THAT MEANS ALOT AND TELLS A STORY. CHECK IT OUT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
THE NEWEST PAINTING IVE CREATED IS TITLED “CALL IT SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL” I TITLED IT THAT BECAUSE ALOT OF TIMES I AM CREATING ART BASED OFF OF HOW I FEEL AND I NORMALLY LET THAT EMOTION TAKES ME WHERE IT MAY BUT RECENTLY I HAVE THOUGHT ALOT ABOUT BEAUTY AND LIFE AND ALL OF THE LIL PLEASURES WE CAN GET OUT OF APPRECIATING ALL THE BEAUTY IN OUR LIVES. THIS PAINTING IS 18X18 DONE ON CANVAS WITH ACRYLIC PAINT. ENJOY AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
This is an abstract piece that I did to remind myself that my journey is nowhere near done and now more then ever I need all of my wits to be applied and amplified. I am a King and my progress is detrimental to my success and my families. This piece is 17×14 done in a mixed media technique.
THIS IS AN ABSTRACT PIECE I HAVE RECENTLY PAINTED IN ACRYLIC. I THINK THIS PIECE IS WHAT I WOULD CALL A PURE EXPRESSION AT ITS TRUEST FORM, NOTHING CALCULATED ACCEPT FOR THE ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE AND REALIZING ONE HAS ALREADY DONE SO. ENJOY THIS PIECE AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. IT CURRENTLY REMAINS UNTITLED. THE PIECE IS 17X14 ON MIXED MEDIA.
THIS NEW VISUAL COLLABORATION COMES WITH GREAT JOY AND IN MY OPINION OF TERRYS MODELING, GREAT SKILL. WE SHOT THIS PHOTO SHOOT RIGHT HERE IN NEW YORK CITY AT THE HIGH LINE AROUND THE CHELSEA AREA. TERRY HAS A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT LOOKS IN THIS PHOTO SHOOT AND I THINK HER CHOICE OF CLOTHING WAS PRECISE WITH THE TIMES AND THE WEATHER. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK I’M SURE ME AND HER WILL BE COLLABORATING AGAIN SOON. PHOTOS WERE SHOT WITH A CANON T3I.
