Magie Serpica and I were invited by Monica of Staten Island Arts to do some live painting at the Fresh Kills sneak-peek event in September of 2013.  For those of you who might not know what Fresh Kills is, it’s the park land that is being reclaimed from the closed landfill on Staten Island.  It’s amazing, and somewhat controversial, but  I won’t get into any of that here.  We got a tour of the spot, and were shown the bridge wall we’d be painting at the event.

About kevrwk

"psyn": (n) pronounced "sin". shortened form of Psyntax, etymological roots in "psyche" and "syntax", or "mind/soul-code". robots will kill since 2001. i started writing on things that didn't belong to me at 9, writing scenes and lyrics at 12, live poetry performances by age 14, canvases and stencils at 24 and am just getting started. i tend to choose subjects of great personal attachment for me, either personally/emotionally or conceptually/philosophically. while creating a portrait, i'm drawn into contemplating the dynamic i have with that person or concept and what they represent in an archetypal sense to my own mythology. i enjoy collaborating on everything from stickers to large installation pieces.
