I ain’t no pretty boy, and if  you’ve seen me in SoHo you know i make moves on my skateboard. So I was mad tight that I didn’t bring mine, after getting up on all the cool spots to…any way. There’s this “spot” call SWAG, and my dude Edvin laced your boy nice with a new deck, PHAT cruise control wheels, da whole nine. So on some real talk, SWAG (and my dude Edvin) helped me get my SWAG on for real.

This Right Here Is My Swag…

Shout out to our studio assist, college MAN, Malcolm. I thought it only fitting since he hipped us to one of his favorite songs this summer, that I represent, and get my “PRETTY BOY SWAG” on while out here in Norway. LOL. You know how we do. ‘DIS RIGHT HERE IS MY SWAG! ;-) Oh and thanks to Gunnar for loaning me the whip during my stay in Norway, you got me feeling like I’m somebody in this art thang.

He gave us Hope…

And brought about change. So, shout out to my dude “O” aka Mr. President, aka the HNIC (Head NOBODY In Charge of our country). But real talk, to REBUILD this nation, and our economy is going to require more than lip service. This message paid for by street artists that care (wink).

Just A Thought

The choice is yours. Just a thought I wanted to share inspired by Norway’s exit signs… Which feature a man running toward??? You decide. -Tmnk

But according Norwegian artist  Espen Gleditsch, this is the end. What do you think?

Today I went where he lived, saw what he saw, and now have a better understanding of the impression nature had on him. Plus to have lived here in the winter with nothing to warm him but a wood stove and his passion to creat art, that’s Gangsta!

Gett’n Ready To Show My Ass in Norway

Gallerie Galleberg director Kjetil

Somebody pinch me. Because this is a long way from drawing characters of my teachers in the back of the class. And farther still from the streets of SoHo where I began creating street art with my boyyyeee AVONE. Yet it”s the kind of thing I dreamed of, and worked very hard for, painting day and night, and hustl’n my art in the streets and online. So, I am very pleased and excited that  my work caught the attention of curator Marte Jettestad and Gallerie Galleberg director Kjetil here in Norway. And while I will do my best to behave with a bit of decorum, and like I’ve been here before. But let’s let’s face it, I’m a nobody, so expect me to show my ass while I’m here (wink). And it seems that I have a lot of good people here to help me do just that.

There is literally an army of SOMEBODYS behind the scene (including my cuz who prints all my bandanas and t-shirts), scheduling interviews, promoting, designing, slapping stickers, framing, and some just HANGING around to ensure Norway KNOWS Nobody is/was here doing the damn thing.

It seems I just can’t wait to get to Norway. So, Elisabeth from the town of Moelv was nice enough to stop by and say hello.

This Could Be Me

This could be me, in fact it once was. Nowhere to sleep, no food to eat, drowning in piss and in need of a kiss, or a hug.
