  • In the words of T La Rock: It’s Yours! These two words resonate deeply with me. They capture the sentiment I have for my borough and its universality. From T La Rock to The RZA on Wu Tang Forever delivering his version of “It’s yourz!”, those words echo throughout this cityscape like the echoes of the trains in my old living room. This has been my family’s building and view in the Highbridge section of The Bronx since 1981. I’ve lived and witnessed aerosol writing, style, and culture evolve throughout my lifetime. Tonight after visiting my mother, I get to walk over to the Bronx Museum of the Arts, across from where my father and cousins lived in Executive Towers and pass the bodega my father owned on the corner of Walton Ave and 165th St in the 70s and celebrate with José Parlá and family on his first museum show in New York. José’s now added an original visual contribution to the concept “It’s Yours”. A reminder to all of us, including those of us who still reside here, that The Bronx and all of its cultures, as global and universal as it is, is still ours. I’ve known José for 14 years now and have had countless conversations with him and his brother Rey Parlá on Aerosol Writing, Hip Hop culture and how transformational it’s been for all of us. From the South Bronx, down to South Miami and now to the Grand Concourse go see how our culture has evolved on its own terms. It opens tonight at 6 PM. Congratulations brother! #JoseParlá #ItsYours #TheBronxMuseum #BXMA

  • I just had to take one more look at my old tag. It's now and forever apart of history. I spent many days at this table eating chilling and boxing and shrink wrapping VHS copies of Videograf. Looking at this tag I reflect on my long journey towards what and who I am today. Man has the time truly passed by. But the ride ain't over yet. And I'm gonna continue to ride and ride out as hard as I can. Peace

  • Social Sunday’s : #friendsandfamily
I had the pleasure of spending some quality time at @joseparla s studio yesterday afternoon...including a preview of the spectacular series of work he is in the middle of producing for his exhibition next month at #thebronxmuseum Great to catch up with him plus old friend James Lavelle @unkleofficial Always an inspiration seeing other artists going hard, and the studio Jose built is simply state of the art too. All work and no play makes jack a dull boy, so occasionally making time to disconnect and spend time with peeps is key. Now back to work, and see you at Jose’s show in the BX soon too. #almostnevernotworking

  • Myself, @henrychalfant , @carlosmare ,@suso33 and students from @thepointcdc - photo opp. Close and intimate time at The Bronx Museum. #artvstransit1977_1987  Today My student group and myself were blessed to have an intimate private tour with the man that unwrapped this culture to the world - Mr.Henry Chalfant at The Bronx Museum. Arguably where it all started, the Mecca of graffiti writing. MARE139 helped make the connection and was also present and helpful during the tour. The exhibition Art vs. Transit was the film Style Wars, and the book Subway Art (and more) in exhibition form. Unseen photos, black books, photo albums, videos, and life size subway trains painted by the most revered Writers of our culture. This was the moment that changed my life, in 1984, watching that film. Fast forward 35 years, SPRAYFINGER is making its way nationally and helping others create within the aesthetics of Graffiti Art. I’m grateful & blessed - with tears of joy. #sprayfinger honoring the ones that came before laid the foundation and paved the way! #stylewars #subwayart #henrychalfant #mare139 #thebronxmuseum #thebronx #newyorkcity # #themecca #graffitieducation #artofcreativelettering

  • The Bronx art museum always has unique exhibits on display. Currently the “Delirious Matter” exhibition by Diana Al-Hadid is one of my favs! ✨
And since I travel to Cuba on the regular for work, I admire the exhibition “Nature, Spirit & Body” by one of the most notable Afro-Cuban artists from the revolutionary period, Manuel Mendive. 🎨👌

When I travel I love to see art from around the world! Art affects our perception and opens our minds to new ideas. 💡

Check out the @bronxmuseum in NYC! 😀

  • In the words of T La Rock: It’s Yours! These two words resonate deeply with me. They capture the sentiment I have for my borough and its universality. From T La Rock to The RZA on Wu Tang Forever delivering his version of “It’s yourz!”, those words echo throughout this cityscape like the echoes of the trains in my old living room. This has been my family’s building and view in the Highbridge section of The Bronx since 1981. I’ve lived and witnessed aerosol writing, style, and culture evolve throughout my lifetime. Tonight after visiting my mother, I get to walk over to the Bronx Museum of the Arts, across from where my father and cousins lived in Executive Towers and pass the bodega my father owned on the corner of Walton Ave and 165th St in the 70s and celebrate with José Parlá and family on his first museum show in New York. José’s now added an original visual contribution to the concept “It’s Yours”. A reminder to all of us, including those of us who still reside here, that The Bronx and all of its cultures, as global and universal as it is, is still ours. I’ve known José for 14 years now and have had countless conversations with him and his brother Rey Parlá on Aerosol Writing, Hip Hop culture and how transformational it’s been for all of us. From the South Bronx, down to South Miami and now to the Grand Concourse go see how our culture has evolved on its own terms. It opens tonight at 6 PM. Congratulations brother! #JoseParlá #ItsYours #TheBronxMuseum #BXMA
