“Sprayz in the Hood”
For some kids growing up in the streets, some activities may be exploring the city as an urban playground and connecting to the arts of the Hip-Hop. From street fashion, rap music, dance, writings on the walls, and DJ’s playing music, this is the universal culture of many young people and adults in the hood.
The installation displays a video game graffiti cartoon world with letters, buildings, colors, backgrounds, characters, and surroundings, all created to reflect the spirit of Hip-Hop, the hood, and street knowledge. All work is created on found objects, wood-cut outs and recycled canvas materials.
