Peace to you.. almost year's end.. lets finish it off by going in a completely different direciton than norm.. My latest RoQ'y TyRaiD work "The RaiDiant Child" parallels the story of Jean-Michael Basquait's own self-discovery and the relentless pursuit of one's passion.. despite the objections of those around him and the seemingly insurmountable odds that lay before.
The unorthodox approach to art and the determination to voice one's opinion, forever questioning the status quo, whether in-depth or satirically.. propels the artist(s) to new zenith(s)..
What affects will this (did this) have.. on someone so disconnected from the standards of society..
Either way.. behind a raincloud lies the sun. Illuminate.
