I tend to say "be positive, do the right thing"

Dj Cutbird and MC B.O., NYC 2011

My photos are borderline commercial and art.
The line is so thin, its like walking on thin ice.

How far can I push it?

Art was all about how far you can push it. Have we seen anything sensational since that tomato soup cans? I've seen Serra and Turrel but that's solid. Cutting the line is a bit different from being solid, because the difference is differentiating and being bold.

Make it so bad but good.

I got no high-school diploma.

WELCOME, Jungle!

I started a scene in Singapore called the Jungle.

We give out free stickers and what-nots.

One day my member sent me a rant about his job, so I made it to be a sticker.
Our pseudo-name or alter-ego'ish name is "Coco Chen".

It's because his last name is Chen, like any chinese men.

"The EMPIRE is a star!"

Voted Ugliest Building in town, New York 2011

Life is so far from us.
I don't see the jungle or the foliage or herds of simply happy people here.

Concrete jungle provides you fresh mangoes miles away, perhaps torn or stolen from mother earth.
Who knows.

But we have been made-belief to t-t-t-t-take it.
T-t-t-t-take advantage with that stutter and be no different from others.
You should t-t-t-t-take it. And join the Empire.

Chiangmai, 2010

These were all shot with my girlfriend's cheap point-and-shoot camera from like the 2004.

I hear people say "Oh you need a good camera to have good shots" and "expensive camera always deliver better image" but that's not true. 

Look at Andy Warhol for instance. 

All his tools were stupid stuff. Polaroid Big Shot used have ads saying "forget about focus" and "forget lighting". He even painted his stuff using sponge mops, the same thing we use for cleaning floors. Most of his tools were the cheapest available. 

What's more important is to use what we have. 

Russel Peters used to say "be a Man, do the Right thing."

There is no waste and waste if you see can only be your own reflection. 

We need to do what we can, with what we have.

"Wow, Full-Power"

Laura, Singapore 2011

The step is front back front side then away. 
Look how she throws her shoulder. 

Her fist can come at you any time. 

The Paaty

Singapore, 2011

I went to this Paaty and stuck around this Dj. 
We traveled in the van with Matt stuck in the back. 

Met an architect dancing on the floor.

The jungle

Three Compositions

Matt and Andriano, 2011

To me, being around good people is first. 
Situation comes second. Then time comes third. 

When it's all about the composition, it's all about Black and White. 
My friend and a photographer Igor Molochevsky taught me that long ago. 

"Wow, Full-Power" my friend Andriano smiles and says that all the time. 

Photographing moving people is hard. You've got to move with them, at the same velocity to catch their life. Where in the world are they going?

Well, you've gotta move along.

The brothers Crupi

Gaetano Crupi Jr. and Phillip
New York, 2011

I don't know what is photography and not. 
These days, the lines are thin and I see more and more of something I cannot explain. 

Sometimes, I ignore every rule and say "I just don't care".

It doesn't produce something that's great, but it produces something real.

So I guess my next step is to get it real.

Galactic Andy

Monroe's got a new look. 
She's being exhibited everywhere these days. 

If I'm not wrong, my job is to design her into a museum. Whatever that means. 

Original art by Warhol

Monroe's got a new look. 
I'm planning to print her and 13 more pictures with lines everywhere, connecting the dots. 
All stickers, all around the city.

KANYE song

I was listening to Kanye's "POWER", clapping hands in my head, finding compositions.

Perfect Composition

I think Andy was pretty galactic at his time.
He united so many people.

We were watching compositions all along.

Order, repetition and composition takes it all into a whole new different level.
New level.


Square Society

Don't go the wrong way, 
Stay good and true. 

Here's a galactic diagram to where we should go. 
And it seems there is only one way to go. 

We all carry this diagram within us.

Place yourself in the middle, and we can be either or.

By the way, this is the ghettoest form of painting, according to art history.
