My residency at Brighton University concluded with the completion of the installation in the galleries. It was an incredible experience to finally realize a concept I had 22 years ago. I could not have done this with out the support and investment of many who gave of themselves either in time and resources. Off the top I want to acknowledge some folks, Letty for recommending me as the artist in residence, Indy and Kevin and their volunteers who have been producing the Brighton Hip Hop Festival/Rising Styles going on 5 yrs, Brighton University- Gez, Heidi, Dave, Steve, Gaby and Toby, Red Bull- Katya, Matt, Steffen, and the guy who drove the WU StyleWriter from Berlin to Brighton. I especially want to thank my assistants- Naqeeb, Toby, Jennifer, Antonio, Jill, MC Outsider. This project, more than a piece of art was a process, an experience, a collaboration not unlike much of the subway painting of my early years. I couldnt do this alone so not only do I give thanks to the folks that made this happen but to those writers who paved the path for such forward thinking ideas to happen. That said, are you ready for whats next…...
