Disrupting the gallery: Ruminations of a Street Artist 

 

Street Art cannot be stopped and the idea of getting your message out to a mass audience has artists pushing the limits and coming up with new methodologies to lead their campaigns, which is essential to propagating there messages. Major influences from the past and present exist, from the Egyptian hieroglyphics to Giant, Twister, Shepard Fairy and Banksy.  It is these artists who have made street art what it is today - inspiring others to join this art realm that never sleeps and is constantly reinventing itself.  It is all about getting up and being seen, an endless hustle of constant creation in any context from the latest news media icons to pop icon imagery, social-political and the ironic. 

 

The key to longevity in street art is determining innovative ways to disseminate and educate the masses.  In creating my concept, known as the Street Art Tapestry my goal was to insure that the art has scalability to be moved from the streets to the gallery – enabling the masses exposure to the message.   The Street Art Tapestry is a painted substrate that can be hung in the streets, overpasses, billboards, and city walls - essentially anywhere there is a surface – and can be of varying sizes.

 

Art galleries have a wonderful purpose, but access is not always one of them.  My goal in this creation is to enable everyone the chance to see my work.  Unlike a painted mural, the Street Art Tapestry has the ability to move and is everlasting.

 

I will be unveiling the world’s first ever Street Art Tapestry show at the Downtown LA Art Walk, June 14th, 2012.  It is because of the Development Manager, Kirk Thompson at the Corporation Building, that my vision will become a reality.  You are all welcome to be the first to see a show of this kind.

Event details: Outdoor parking lot, 716-724 Spring Street, in DTLA.
When: June 14, 2012, 7-10 pm

In these times of uncertainty, we must remain focused. Patience and
perseverance must be our strongest of virtues.  For it is in these
times, we must walk with confidence and faith in ourselves. For when
others are hopeless and filled with despair, we must hold them high
and acknowledge their struggles. In doing so, this will unify us to
understanding what our goal is for humanity. We are all unified in

spirit; and for those of us who know, we must communicate this to the
ones that are in the unknowing.  The Uprising is upon us.

Blinded by darkness, I am lost and scathed. Panicked with anger and monstrosity, I stare even deeper into the black abyss, where no light can penetrate. Suffocated with self-torturing and unfathomable thoughts, I sink; deep and deeper, as if an anchor was shackled to my legs. The bottom is defeat, so I must find a way to pick the shackle's lock and set myself free. This world is the black abyss and I must not give into its greed lusting raping of our mother. Mother! I will fight for you!! Till death!!!

-Michael "Che" Romero

A mind that does not wonder, dream, think and question is a mind that has been washed of substance and intellect. Sloth is the avoidance of mental, physical or spiritual work. Sloth to me is the avoidance of understanding one's self. People need to know that consumerism and materialism are not who we are. American Culture teaches us to accept this form of behavior, through the means of mass media propaganda and misinformation from television and news. We as Americans have been brain washed through these means and our minds are filled with negativism, sexism, greed, and selfish ideas that oppress our minds from reaching full consciousness.

Shed the material world for a moment and enter mine.
