I had to paint a giant canvas to send oversea, So i wanted some reassurance that everything would go well, plus I had no idea what to expect, As i walk in there was a young lady she said i'll do the reading set up a price, went to the atm when i came back her grandmother was yelling at her,"your not even supossed to do reading", so i guess i was about to be hustled by the young girl, The older lady had all the signs of a physic, old, wrinkly, looked like a middle eastern witch dressed in gold, seemed legit.
when she started she kept, smiling while looking at me,pointing a finger at me she said do you believe in the afterlife, I said, sure why not. As i finshed, she told me in my afterlife you used to be an egyptian painter, Boom! this lady got me paying attention, She asked me if i painted, I looked at my clothes and hands to see if i had any paint on them, Which most likley i always do, but not today. I told her i did, she said, i would be rich and famous and died in my early 90's, That rich and famous part I really didn't want to hear, She didn't even know my name kept me thinking, she does some good parlor tricks, as i left. As for the giant canvas she said it wasn't my first time at the rodeo and that is would be fine.
The reason I started to do “GUTTERSNIPE ART” I stopped calling it graffiti art because the media portrays it as something evil and generalizes the whole subject with gang marking there territory and vandalism. “I paint to keep my mind sane” Painting bring a clarity that is additive. When you draw, sketch, or paint you only think about the task at hand and it clears you mind about the world around you. It even heightens my sense of hearing. For a few hours a day I am at peace. There is tranquility in a world of chaos and turmoil. This is the reason I create I love to feel this clarity. I don’t paint for fame or for money or peer recognition. I do sell my canvases but if you break down the hours, the materials, I usually just break even to continue my passion to create. This is why street artist don’t know there addicted to create. We are all just trying to find peace.
