I was a supervisor/coordinator at the University of Hip-Hop from 1996 to 2000. In that time we created murals and coordinated hip-hop shows and events that I believe made a great progress in others' lives. My art stems from that progress we made. The many words that describe that progress, the many colors and emotions attached to it. Emotional connections with words and also a constant motion of change that words and communication create. They can progress and digress but they can also do neither and just perceptions change. Words have changed in history and conform to societies and trends. Words change within cultures. Words change within civilizations. Words progress as humanity progresses. Communication vocally is one way that has helped humanity progress. In the way we
communicate has changed and progress over time. As the painting progresses the letters progress. they change and morph. just like the perceptions and ideas of words change our ideas and perceptions morph and progress and digress. The letters bend as to creating its own individuality. Each letter moves as to having its own personality. At the end. each letter, word and background are all in motion together.
