"Erudition" by @apolotorres
Words by Apollo Tores :
This piece is very special because it represents one of the biggest driving forces during my creative process: Music, specially jazz. I really can't work without it, and right when I started working for my solo show, I came across @kamasiwashington and the whole West Coast Get Down's work and it really was one of those things that's just what I needed at the moment. In this piece I celebrate the importance of erudition, inspiring young people to persue art literacy and creative freedom from a very young age.
This piece features a little bit of @ryanpapaporter, Brian Blade, as well as my own daughter as inspirations, even though I did some changes here and there in all the characters to achieve what I wanted for this composition.
This one really means a lot to me. Thanks a lot to all this great masters that inspire me to keep doing the best and most authentic work I can!
