This has been a very busy summer; one of the things I have done is organizing a live painting event at Boogie on the Boulevard with BxArts Factory and HeavenBound7 Sk8 Shop. Henry, the owner of the store, repurposed about 20 old skate decks sanded them and prep them to be painted.

I believe we all have the power to change something in life. We have to believe in it and act consequently. If thoughts stay in your mind and you don’t bring them to action, no one is going to do it for you. It is important to stand up for rights and as an artist I am the first one to encourage other artist to price their artwork for what it is worth.
