Statement

I am an interdisciplinary artist and my work is about transcending the symbolic systems of language and image by investigating the role they play in forming identity. For the past several years I have been working on a project called "The Shank" that uses self-help techniques and Hip-Hop culture as the foundation for this investigation. I use the prominent expressions of Hip-Hop; its iconography, rap music, graffiti, etc and through imitation and repetition embody the creation and thus the creator. In essence filling myself up with the other until a new self manifests and from this new self a new creation, artwork that comes into fruition from learning a collage of various works from various artists in various mediums channeled into existence through my definitive voice. Currently I am finishing a series of drawings of my stylized alphabet influenced by copying graffiti.

Video Series. Duration 04:07. 2012. This is episode 11 of a series of video blog posts. With the aim to be "All City", a graffiti term meaning the state of being known for one's graffiti throughout a city, I document the posting of my tag BlackGold. In this episode I am being interviewed by a guest street artist, The Jester, about my practice while I post a BlackGold on a street in Minneapolis.
