Artist Wanted: Art Takes Times Square
Last thing I believe I posted about was being one of the artist who was chosen for "Art Takes Times Square". Where Artist Wanted (now known as See.Me) took digital billboards and display artist works that won an online competition in Times Square. I remember working at Bed Bath & Beyond the day of the online broadcast and so didn't get to see it. But wasn't too long afterwards when these two photos appear.
Interviewed on X102.3 | Met Kendrick Lamar
"After meeting Kendrick Lamar (S/o to DJ Menace for hooking that up so Asif could give KDot a painting) , Poet who fell in love with my piece "Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown" decided to interview me on air about being a artist / art. One of the greatest moments of my life"
Another thing to note is that that Obama painting (which I had did maybe two nights prior) was one of the first in the new style I began to use. We met Kendrick right before GKMC took off. Real cool dude.
ArtOfficiallyDope "We CAN Together"
If you recall back then alongside my homie Daniel Fortune, we had an urban art group showcase called "ArtOfficiallyDope". One of the last shows we did was a can drive for Ipromote Peace to feed the homeless. It was a great time, these are times I was realizing I enjoy curating.
