BUA  Artist. Family first.

#Annieruok @thrashbird This is the painting that I collaborated on with @anniepreece using my classic DJ image as the template. We flipped the script with the help of Annie’s insane creativity and transformed my DJ into DJ Jesus. Playing with religious iconography we open up the conversation and allow the viewer to think about where we place our spiritual values? Jesus is perceived typically as Christ on a cross but in this painting we can assume that music could also be a religion and a spirituality— Allowing the viewer to ask where we invest spiritual curiosity. Maybe it’s urban culture, music, hip hop or perhaps it’s just simply the divine love of Jesus.
A new podcast about Love Annie @artattackpodcast is up so take a listen. We hope Annie is ok and we love and support her work and her!

Happy 45th Birthday to the one and only NAS! 🎁
Nas saw the world from outside the box and documented it from a window inside the Queensbridge Projects. His words emit a colorless, disconnected sense of being as he earnestly chronicled life around him. Nas was a ghetto documentarian that inked words and made you feel as if you were witnessing his life and surroundings firsthand. He was a poet. @nas
