DOMINICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY / CHILE / HAWAII/ KANYE PRINT COMING SOON!

Good morning my good peoples hope all are doing well. First and foremost praises to the most high for allowing us to be here another day.  Sad to say that Chile right now is in a major state of emergency with that earthquake it suffered two days ago my prayers go out to the whole country of Chile stay strong it will take time to put the pieces together but you shall overcome this catastrophe.  And to those who lost their lives my condolences go out to the families of those who didn't make it.  We do not have any warnings of these types of natural disasters or what not and we have to hope for the best and keep the faith.  I am a strong believer that mother earth has had it with the damage man has done to it and it is reacting to all these years of mistreating and now it is taking on its revenge and letting us know that I also breath and live like the rest of ya'll!

American art Icon (Andy Warhol) will be on exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in June 2010 until September 2010.  Andy Warhol: The Last Decade is the first U.S. museum survey to examine the late work of American artist Andy Warhol (1928–1987). Encompassing nearly fifty works, the exhibition reveals the artist’s vitality, energy, and renewed spirit of experimentation. During this time Warhol produced more works, in a considerable number of series and on a vastly larger scale, than at any other point in his forty-year career. It was a decade of great artistic development for him, during which a dramatic transformation of his style took place alongside the introduction of new techniques.

Another artist that I've always been of fan of him and his work has been painter and illustrator Mike Thompson.  His work is infinite and definitely speaks for itself.  I remember when I used to cop XXL and other hip-hop / urban magazines I would always see some of his work.  And I would always ask myself yo who is this artist.  His work is easily identifiable because of his unique style and technique.  His application of color and the draftsmenship of his drawings are almost unexplanable.  But his work definitely deserves a standing ovation some of the artists he's done paintings or illustrations are Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Prince Paul, DMX, Jim Jones, Jermaine Dupre, T.I, Pharrell Williams, Rick Ross, and Jay-Z and the list goes on.  Some of his clients consist of Ecko, EA sports, Coke, XXL.  Here is some of his works enjoy!
