This is a fusion of the old and the new. I first heard Aretha Franklins “One Step Ahead” in Mos Def’s hit “Ms. Fat Booty” the crazy thing is I never even realized that that was her vocals until recently although she is one of my favorite artists of all time. Anyhow, this painting includes her lyrics of “I’m only one step ahead of heartbreak, one step ahead of misery…” juxtaposed by Yasiin Bey’s “What’s your name love, where you came from?” It’s like they are talking to one another over the canvas. Aretha was 23 years old when she released this song in 1965 on Columbia Records. Check out both songs and listen to them while studying the painting.
This piece is created in Gallery Style Edges, Kiln-dried Stretched Bars canvas and is 40 inches in width and 30 inches in height. Created with acrylic paint as the medium and will be finished using permanent marker.
Rodney H King. I am a artist whom recently started painting. I generally focus on imaging depicting black culture as well as city scapes. My primary medium is acrylic but I’m always expanding and excerising new ideas. Self taught and motivated by the life I live. Welcome to the strokes of Kings pen.
A little about me. I was raised in the Central District and Federal Way. I am a Marine whom currently manages a post office in the city of Tacoma. My background influences my work due to my love for my culture, I paint what I love, basketball, hip hop, jazz and the state that made me. My art represents my mood, it represents the black experience, happiness, competition, success and love. I am inspired by pop culture, the love of my family and proving those whom doubt me wrong. I create art as a stress reliever as a way to relax and to focus my energy on something positive that brings me and others joy.
