  • Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) December 04, 2008 - When Bahamas-born, son of a teacher and police officer, now accomplished Visual Artist, “REALITY” completed his 7-year tour of duty with the Marine Corp, never did he dream that his travels through Nigeria, Cameroon, the Caribbean Islands and other exotic locales would have lead to such an explosion of artistic expression.

    This visionary, 42-year old has directed his sometimes adverse experiences into what’s been coined a “Reality Check”. REALITY translates his limitless flow of imagery and creativity and shares raw emotions and real-life circumstances through his art in a contemporary context.

    When asked where he taps into his most concentrated source of inspiration, he simply replies “my feelings translate into visual imagery. I use pictures to tell stories, recount dreams and express emotions.” He continued by expressing that he “strongly believes we are experiencing a Renaissance of sorts on Earth and that art created by hand is generating life and encouraging movement.”

    This self-professed late (artistic) bloomer attended a small fine arts college supported in spirit by teachers who encouraged his creative energy. REALITY has turned his hand and eye to custom-embellished apparel, childrenswear & books, and unique consumer products as outlets for his distinctive expression.

    Most recently, REALITY has teamed with a small group of grass roots community organizers called CATCH27 (representing the 27 Florida Electoral Votes). Powered by CATCH27, REALITY created nearly 27 pieces of emotionally-fueled, larger-than-life artworks across Dade and Broward Counties. The works are prominently featured in predominantly economically challenged communities with the intent to raise awareness and encouraged integral voter participation in the 2008 political process in support of President-Elect Senator Barack Obama.

    *REALITY is currently exhibiting his most current works at the W Wine Bistro, 3622 NE 2nd Ave Miami, FL 33137 305-576-7775 now through Art Basel Miami 08. On Saturday December 6th from 4-7pm, he will be hosting an exceptional, rooftop exhibition complete with live painting and apparel display sponsored in part by K-Swiss, Barefoot Foot Wine & Bubbly, essie cosmetics & PERONI Beer – complete with sunset. Wynwood Lofts, 250 nw 23rd street at nw 2nd Ave, 5th Floor Miami 333127.
