I created this piece several months ago using fresh materials. I wanted to capture my story growing up in Philadelphia. It hard to believe that a nerdy kid from the housing projects could grow up to become an artist. As a child, my imagination was my outlet to escape my current reality. I didn’t realize that my childhood experiences would affect my artwork several years later. I have visions of eating tasty cakes, playing in the fire hydrant during the summer, and running to the ice cream truck. This makes rich subject for my collages and paintings.
