Founder of Smoke School of Art Collective

 

Smoke School of Art is an Atlanta based Non Profit think tank that discusses and addresses contemporary philosophy and issues in modern art & culture. We assert that all modern art derives from Africa -all conceptual exercise is derived and conceived in the ancient ceremonies of the Dogon. We are the noble savages that reside on the moon- with rites of passage, shape shifting through the universe. We have special powers embedded in our pigment, hair, and bone. We have been indoctrinated by grimy HIP HOP-you can’t handle our extra muscle.
