So lately i have been captivated by nostalgic obsolete items. I love the metaphors and ways they convey things. It all started with this homage to mixtapes and they way they seem to capture the common feelings of life a desire to rewind, fast forward, or eject. I moved on through some other pieces and have to say one of my favorites is take it to the streets, it captured my thoughts in the current political and social context the need for voice and activism. I love using this iconic item of hiphop culture to make social commentary. I love to paint things that are interesting to look it, but i also like to paint things that resonate. Beyond that i also like to paint things that allow me to express my feelings and views on life.
