Wow! Big weekend! no commission art fair - South bronx!
4 Days of meet & greet, strongly hip hop generation, plus some savvy veterans, mixture of genres but many artists had street art roots. Stage performances by DJ Swizz Beats and invited rap & hot mix performers.
Produced by Bacardi (rum) and THE DEAN FOUNDATION (Swizz Beats, Kaseem Dean).
It was an honor to be accepted and be a part of this currently hot generation of artists - I met and had some overwhelmingly happy conversations with artists who challenged all my own assumptions. I learned a lot.... so much it will take me a while to integrate the experiences. i found my paintings hung just around the corner from MARCUS JAHMAL, a painter who had the show following my November show at FiveMyles Gallery, Brooklyn (with sculptor SANDRA OSIP). AND I SOLD A PAINTING ! YAY!
STEVE POWERS, TODD JAMES, AND DAVE (CHINO) VELOCETTE SHOWED UP
Todd was in the show too, with a huge 8'x 10' SHOWSTOPPER painting.
