Thanks to everyone who’s been watching and supporting, we’ve got some great momentum and are looking forward to our next CAN I KICK IT? LIVE STREAM which will be next Thurs. Apr. 30th, where we’ll be featuring the iconic Mystery of Chessboxing.

Mystery of Chessboxing found it’s way into hip-hop lure because it’s where Ghostface of Wu-Tang Clan gets his name and the title of the movie is also the name of a famed Wu-Tang track.

Barry Bishop The Creative – Exhibition Recap

These are the moments that I live for: culture, creativity, and community.  Not in any order.

And while I very much enjoy what I do creatively to make a living, its events like these that drive me because I’m doing so for the art of (fuck of) it.  I’m doing so because I sincerely like the artist.  And I’m doing so for myself.

This was Barry Bishop’s first show in 10 years and it has been an incredible experience in helping him to realize his ideas in sharing his work and to also have him share his unique history and insights, which have furthered the education of so many.

Congrats to Barry on a successful show.  It has been a pleasure.  Thank you to everyone who attended and thank you to everyone who supported in any form or fashion.

The show will be up until Mon. Dec. 16th and if you would like to schedule a viewing email dcstreetwearexhibition@gmail.com.

Beyond The Streets / Recap 1

I remember when the Beyond the Streets exhibition first opened in L.A. (featuring mostly West Coast writers) a few years back and me definitely wanting to check it out, so when I found out that they were doing an east coast version in NYC – me attending was a no brainer.

To put it short, its everything that I thought it would be and if you’re a fan of graffiti, street-art, and contemporary art then do yourself a favor.  The show stays open until the end of this Sept.

Props to Roger and his team for a well produced show, including all of the programming and product that goes with it, and to check out part 1 of my recap click Read the rest of this entry
