Spraying Bricks-WORD TO MOTHER
Spraying Bricks sais:
California Coming Home…
It was around ’98 when I first met Word To Mother. Lining up outside the courts of Summerfields Leisure Centre, Hastings, for basketball practice. Built like a racing snake, with shorts below the knees and socks pulled up to meet, he was the first kid I’d seen ever spin a ball on his finger. Immediately, at the time with him being my elder, I was amazed. 15 years on and still as humble as ever, Word To Mother is one of the worlds most respected artists.
Spraying Bricks flew out with London based Word To Mother, to San Francisco, in November last year for his show ‘California Coming Home’. Outside, inside, paper, glass, salvaged wood, canvas, baseball bats, skin…Word is diverse in his medium and many of his influences are from everyday life and the positive people that surround him.
Second in the SF series this is the first instalment from Word To Mother, who’s recent works from ‘Too Blessed To Be Stressed’ are currently showing at the Stolen Space Gallery in East London.
A massive thank you to Justin and the guys at White Walls Gallery for their love and hospitality.
This week I chose this interview with Afrika Bambaataa as he stopped by Sway In the Morning to talk the 41st anniversary of The ZULU Nation and more. This is true knowledge.
And as a BONUS he did a fresh mix while there
