WHEN GRAFFITI HANGS WITH THE FINE ARTS…

THESE WERE SOME OF THE PORTRAITS I CREATED FOR THE 2012 “BBOYS 2 BMEN” HEX AND SKILL SHOW. THEY ARE CLEARLY A COMBINATION OF MULTIMEDIA ACRYLICS, OILS, SPRAY PAINT, BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS. I INCORPORATED ACTUAL TURNTABLES, HUNDREDS OF BULLET SHELLS, ANTIQUES, ORIGINAL NEWSPAPER ARTICLES, ETC… INTO THE LAYERS. (click link below)

INNERCITY CHILDREN AND FAMILIES UNDERSTOOD THE VISUAL MESSAGES. GALLERY OWNERS AND LAWYERS OFFERED THOUSANDS FOR THESE PIECES… SOME WERE DESTROYED AFTER THE SHOW…. TO NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN. OTHERS HANG IN NEW PLACES.h4PHANTOM HEX

WHO SAID GRAFFITI CAN’T HANG??? NOT ONLY ON WALLS, ALLEYS, TRAINS AND HANDBALL COURT PARKS…. BUT ALSO WITH THE FINE ARTS.
