WHAT'S IN THE BAG?! 


Slant had noticed my work at the Crocker Museum @ Sac Town. He found interest in my work, contacted me and purchased a piece- "The Golden Voice". I figured he wanted to start collecting artwork and what best to start his collection with that piece, especially having to belong to a HIP HOP CLICK 
"VERBAL TAKTIKS" verbaltaktiks.bandcamp.com

I really admire these guys, they're young and talented. Much like me they're perusing their passion at the same time mastering their craft. They're very well versed about the music scene and the art culture that is going on in the Bay Area, which was dope. These dudes are Savvy!!! Big ups to these guys & Thanks for the Support!!!

For the People, By the People Portrait Series: NEXT ON THE LIST

Carlos Villa - A Poet of Visual Metaphor

For nearly fifty years Carlos Villa has explored the meaning of cultural diversity in his art and in doing so has expanded our awareness of what we consider as “multicultural.” What began in his early career as an attempt to understand his own heritage--a complexity of Filipino traditions with its layered strains of Asian, African, Indian and Oceanic cultures, along with influences of a Western artistic tradition--became over time an exercise in creating his own visual anthropology to represent his personal background, and, in a broader sense, the dynamics of intercultural weaving

Rich Qbert Quitevis AKA DJ Q-Bert- THE DJ

He is often referred to as the JImi Hendrix of the turntables, Known to make them sing in a complex and subtle ways. He invented the first musical annotation system for scratching, battling and composing on vinyl.

Wreckage Upon Wreckage @ LOT Gallery. Kentucky Lexington


Land of Tomorrow (LOT) is pleased to present a pair of exhibitions that will open on the 25th of March with a reception at 7pm at our Lexington location.  The exhibitions will include Involution and Atmosphere by Michael Young and Wreckage Upon Wreckage an exhibition curated by Dan Lorraine including works by Ariel Erestingcol, George Kontos, Stephen Miranda, Adrian Paules, Ryan Taber and Gideon Webster.  The two exhibitions are linked through themes of design.

"This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe which keeps piling wreckage upon wreckage and hurls it in front of his feet. The angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what has been smashed. But a storm is blowing in from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such violence that the angel can no longer close them. This storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call progress.”

For Dan Lorraine, the works involved in the exhibition each embody some aspect Wreckage Upon Wreckage.  It can describe the process of the work, the evolution of the work, or the conceptual architecture of the work.  By this notion, design is the force that propels the angel into the future.  The works of art are relics or artifacts of progress, past or present.  The work created in the past is the wreckage the present work is built upon, in the same way that one genre is often the response of a previous genre.  Each artist included in the exhibition utilizes design in his or her artwork to embody an aspect of the notion of ‘Wreckage’.  Lorraine will be including works by six LA based artists: Ariel Erestingcol, George Kontos, Stephen Miranda, Adrian Paules, Ryan Taber, and Gideon Webster.

The homeless man with the "golden radio voice" wanted a second chance -- and did he ever get it.
As soon as Ted Williams, a panhandler who became an online hit after video of him begging on an Ohio roadside was posted to the Internet, appeared on a local radio show this morning the offers began pouring in -- including a dream job with the Cleveland Cavaliers and a free house.
