It seem my children really enjoy playing in Norway. So much so many have decided to stay and make it their home. These kids just hopped on a first class flight to Galleri Galleberg last week. I’m sure they’re gonna like their new home.

Objective journalism, or more double talk? Seems The racial divide continues to grow every time some ill-informed pinhead opens his or her mouth. It’s 2010, and still race is  a factor? Damn, SAMO.

Lead don’t follow is the expression. And I take great pride in doing just that. So, next month (August 28th) I’ll be premiering my new URBAN DERIVATIVE PAINTINGS in a solo exhibition at Din Ramme og Galleri Galleberg. But, in the meantime I couldn’t help but give a taste via some works on paper to my peeps, the loyal somebodys that hold me down, Shows or no shows.

And they’re getting snatched up by savvy collectors here and abroad, cool. I’ll explain more about what “Urban Derivative” means after the opening in Oslo, Norway. Until then, I hope you’ll continue to enjoy and feast upon these new works.

Aiiight, so by now, many of you know, I’ve been working on a new direction I call “URBAN DERIVATIVES.”  This is one of the newest ones created during the midst of our heat wave. It’s not quite finished yet. Hopefully you’ll dig it when it’s finished.
