My flesh is California. My roots grow upward from Texas, Louisiana, Barbados,
Ireland and Germany. My spirit vibrates African frequencies. I've been a professin’ painter eighteen years. Shona-style stone sculptor for eleven; a visual artist lifelong.
I prefer candlelight over incandescent or florescent, running into my people on the street, over driving; smoking over drinking. First art instructors: Uncle Butch, Grand Daddy Early, Pops’ photography, Isley Brothers, Mama’s craftwork. Long black Cadillacs and panthers and Afros.
Chuck D. reached into my ears and opened my eyes. El Haj Malik El Shabaz modeled clear conviction. Picasso Mondrian, Gladys Knight, and the whole Harlem Renaissance movement moves me. Basquiat, Curtis Mayfield, NWA, Omiiroo massive: our collective.
I paid academy of art college to instruct
their instructors. Was humbled and blessed with careful guidance at Laney College. Made family by Nicolas Mukomberanwa at home in Africa. Still a nigga to galleries and police at home in America.
My art speaks these experiences intending to be beautiful and attractive. Harsh and cold. Rich and textured. Smooth and refined. Hot like fire, and coexisting within one body of work with many chapters, visual music, soul stirring imagery, raw-ass mindfunk blackstrap molasses, straight to the bloodstream.
I been called on to do this by ancestors forever.
And I will not stop.
