Creative Liberation is series of exhibitions and public art projects. It is urban influenced art for art sake. Each body of work/display, challenge common ideas and social constructs of the urban reality and the world around us. The motive behind these exhibitions is to inspire people to inspire people to produce art that can save the world, challenge governments, and liberate artistically oppressed people.

The purpose of this exhibition is to explore, race, urban pop culture, consumerism , the practicalities and function of commercial digital media in the urban environment. The subtitle 11 11 11 was also the launch date. This date was to symbolize the first of the trilogy of exhibitions.

Creative Liberation: Englewood community mural:
This project was developed, and funded by the Englewood Safety network. Working with the Englewood Safety network, I developed the mural design with a team community youth the a number of critiques and meetings. From these meetings I gathered the key points of our conversations, and created an illustration. From this the illustration was then projected and painted on the wall by the community youth. I then finalized and finished the under painting, completing it into a comprehensive, museum quality community mural. The mural is located on 67th and Ashland.

Delusions of Grandeur is a five peace series window display as part of the Pop Up Art Loop exhibitions.

The display is located on Monroe and Wabash, opposite side of the city target. The function of this collection is to inspire conversation, on consumerism, race, religion, gender roles, pop visual culture, and art in the urban environment.

ARTIST BIO:
Growing up on the South Side of Chicago, surrounded by urban art and public murals, I became inspired to be involved with the subculture of Street Art. A consequent arrest for “vandalism” put me on a mission to legitimize the production of aerosol murals. This became the main focus of my work: public murals that fuse the graffiti aesthetic with a classical training received from the American Academy of Art. As co-founder of R.K Design, a graphic arts and mural collective, I have produced over 400 murals, received mural commissions for corporate clients such as Coca Cola, Toyota, The village of Rosemont, and Red Bull. I have also produced illustrations, brand identity, print projects for Frank 151 magazine, Argus brewery, and the Chicago Jazz Fair . Through the Chicago Public Art Group, as well as After School Matters, Sense 2004 I have instructed children in mural painting techniques, as well as mentored young artists in their craft. I currently work out of my studio in the Bridgeport Art Center in Chicago, where in addition to my Mural and teaching career I also create art for gallery exhibitions using oil, acrylic, graphite, pen & ink, pastels, mosaic tile, found objects, spray paint and digital media. I am currently creating street art in cities across the world, creating art works for museum and  gallery exhibitions.


ARTIST STATEMENT:
 
Doctors save lives, police fight crime, and the Artist dictates what we know as Image, Icon, and Form. I live a life-style of observation and creation. I believe that being well informed on the subject of your work and having an organized strategy produces a more intriguing work of art. I believe man has the right to choose his reality. In my reality I have chosen my own destiny; time and fate have confirmed that producing art is my positive contribution to society. The work I produce both symbolizes and creates optimism for life in our industrialized society.
