“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.

In the News

Art on Armitage was named as the second of 5 best window galleries in Chicago by New City News in their end of year edition on Dec 22. Who knew I had competition? I certainly have been at this the longest, since 2003.
