New York Street Artist TMNK, has been associated with the street tag “NOBODY CARE$,” but does he really. Well, just ask the kids at the Cook Center Academy at�MacDougal Street in NYC, where �the New York Street Artist paid a surprise visit, and left his tag on the hearts and and minds of the students that he spoke too. And although Cook Center Academy is considered a school for children with disabilities, TMNK’s message to them was that they were more or less different or special than any other kids, and that they could do anything they put their mind to.

Nobody gave the kids T-shirts and bandannas with is message, ART IS MY WEAPON. Inviting them to use creative expression as a weapon for change in their lives, communities. One of the students, JR, a talented aspiring Graffiti/Street Artist was given a special gift from TMNK’s recent �Modern Urbanisms exhibit, valued at $1000.

The biggest gift of the day, is the one the kids gave him, the smile on his face and inside his heart and the knowledge that giving a little of his time may have made a BIG difference in their lives. Priceless.

The weather is warming up, and with it you can feel a certain excitement. People are starting to get out more. And with the warm weather also come warm thoughts and feelings; Love is in the air. And if a certain New York Street Artist has his way, LOVE will also be in the streets. BabyLOVE is New York Street Artist TMNK’s aka NOBODY’s newest way of reminding a cold and often uncaring world not to fight each other, but instead to fight for a more loving and humane society. They say LOVE is where you find it. NOBODY is on a mission to make sure EVERYBODY finds some love…BABY ;-)

My Soul Hungers for YOU

LOVE feeds my fearless soul, tiny morsels nourish my body. Face paint fades, and the world remembers the tears of a lonely clown.

What’s In Your Wallet?” Capital One has been asking that question since 2005 via their tag line. Well I have a tagline, “Nobody Gives A F#%K!” what’s in your wallet However, I do care about what’s in your HE(ART) and your soul, because the impact of what we find there can change lives.

Value Systems, I confront them and assault them daily. Art (and in this case an ipad) is my weapon. (wink) .

Yo! Art Basel Miami, the streets of New York is coming…open wide.

Walk With Me – (18″ x 24″ Acrylic and Enamel on masonite)

It’s early. Walk with Me. Alone. Walk with me. A wounded soul crys out in the dark. Walk with me. I’ll never forget and I’ll Never quit. Walk with me. Over and around fences, through fears, and despite hate. Walk with Me. With love, with Kindness, with Peace, as friends. Walk with Me. I pray one day, perhaps today you’ll walk with me. – TMNK

I see you peering through the stain glass windows of my soul. Color blind, everything to you is black and white. Shades of grey have ben discarded, my technicolor story rewritten, condensed, for distribution on unsocial networks. I’m more than a painting waiting to be hung. I’m Van Gogh, with both ears still firmly attached.

Where do I go from here…

I love creating art, and I love meeting new and interesting people. But my life has once again brought me to a crossroad. So many questions, and my heart, yearns for answers. If I were Picasso, then this would be my “blue” period. At times I summon the creative forces of the universe just to paint a smile on my face.
