Yes, Art Can Make Us Smile

Hot Damn! It’s happening, tomorrow my solo exhibition will be installed on Billboard Hope!!! When I was a kid, I used to walk past this billboard in Boston’s historical John Elliot Square, almost every day. Back then the ad space was used to sell negatives, like cigarettes and alcohol. And as you might imagine, theyContinue reading “Yes, Art Can Make Us Smile”

The Artists’ Art

The Artists22 x 28 So this happened. While I was commissioned to do one piece, I created 3. Someone asked me, how does that happen… for me, my mind is much faster than my hands and the paint dries too quickly. So I move across one canvas onto the next and in this case, ontoContinue reading “The Artists’ Art”

Her Blue Art

Emotional. That feeling we get, when we’re choked up and frustrated. When it feels like we can’t speak, because the vowels got stuck in our throats. I was inspired to paint this while listening to The Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” #Musicality 🎶

The Art of Double Dutch

When I was growing up, I would be mesmerized by kids who could Double Dutch Jump rope. I myself, never learnt how to jump. I think it might’ve been because I couldn’t jump high enough, or maybe it was because I couldn’t move my legs fast enough, over the passing ropes. But whatever it wasContinue reading “The Art of Double Dutch”

Got Art

My walls aren’t meant to just hold up the ceiling or separate the rooms. While those are of course, excellent reasons for a wall’s existence, what if the other reason for a wall, besides hanging a photograph and the occasional clock is to add joy & color? When I look at my walls, I seeContinue reading “Got Art”

These Queens

These queens of the community, the survivors and strivers who share stories and inspire one another. Who stretch a dollar out of fifteen cents, and provide food and a roof over their abandoned children’s heads. These women will raise children to dream of great heights. They will believe that they can become SOMEBODY. And they’llContinue reading “These Queens”

Cautionary Art

Remembering my nephew as he would toss his daughter up into the air and catch her. Remembering the infectious sound of her giggles. I’d watch them play Peek-A-Boo and Hide-N-Seek. He’d chase her around the living room and into the kitchen. He’d make big loud growling noises and she’d squeal in delight. He’d pounce towardsContinue reading “Cautionary Art”

Falling Fist

Domestic Violence doesn’t discriminate, it doesn’t care what race you are, doesn’t care about your age or your gender. Domestic Violence impacts us all in a myriad of ways. Recently a woman gazing at one of my ugly paintings, contacted me to say that I should paint the roles in reverse. I didn’t respond. HowContinue reading “Falling Fist”

My Art Appeal

People look at my art and ask me questions: Where do I get the images that I paint? They are the bits and pieces of my life, as I remember them, that are highlighted by my emotions. A feeling I once felt and a life that was once mine to touch. My paintings are alwaysContinue reading “My Art Appeal”
