I’m acquainting people in New York.
Usually, artists like me should go meet up Galleries.

Not me.

Jerry Saltz called me an idiot.
It’s a bliss to know nothing actually.

I am in New York to ‘visit’.
I have always been helped and given a place to stay and things to do.
This city treats me well.

I came back to New York City.
I wanted to make a solid ground. I should'a just packed my life and left.
This city treats me well.

I acquainted people working at retailers.
Ladies working at clothing shops. Managers, retailers, assistant directors.
Ladies and gents. Just everyone.
I am helped and given opportunities now, only to prove to just prove myself.
But that is well, because -

New York City has not changed a bit.

I met this homeless man.
“Come on, man, come on. Y’all got some stuff for me?”
I was with a friend. The man was freezing... or at least shivering vigorously.
“Okay, what do you want?” my friend cuts straight.
“Food. And Metro-Card.”
My friend frowns and replies “well, I don’t have food ON me... and we’re about to go dine...”
I dashingly handed my 1-week unlimited-fee Metro-Card that was in my pocket.
I thought to hesitate, but oh whatever.
The homeless man looked straight into my eyes with confusion.
“Nah man, I need FOOD.”

He gave me back my card, and I took it back. This time I didn't care to hesitate.
I want my 1-week Metro-Card too.
We walked away in silence.

From a short distance, the man yelled.
“Yo man! How MUCH was on that card?”

My friend looked at me and said: “in this city, it’s all about your mentality.”

I've got a plan.

It's not like I have NO plans at all.
I make no plans but I do have a general plan that kinda.. doesn't exist.

We must run on artform, ainnit. Unplanned action.

I got plans though, like, I gotta make a something that makes even the stukkup asshole bitches be like HO DAMN.

I made a something that people with a Heart gettit.

They all get it right...

But that is never enough.
Oh soul. It's so hard to dig you when it's fallen so deep in the city.
I have to shine brighter to scoop it up.

that's my plan.

That time when I was Warhol's Exhibition Designer... Project Manager ;))

Life is tough and memory passes, but life goes on. 
Looking back, I must say it was FUN working in the industry. Thanks to Singapore, I worked on many projects that a young architect like me would have spent a lifetime try earning it... 

I do not look back with any desire to go back, but if I'd have to re-live it, I can't complain... ;)))

Getting some shoots in LA finally.
It's been about a year since I came back.

Cops pulling people over. Locking people in jail. 
Atlanta gets heavy. 

An officer working for the supreme court spilled some secrets for me inside Lyft. 
"I tell every young kid, young kids especially, to be careful"

"Those police ain't gonna joke around on you. They'll take you straight to jail for the most ridiculous thing"

"The state of Georgia, is a VERY money hungry state, that will try to get every penny off of you."

KKK no joke. Southern got real today. Real, real. 

Besides all bullshit here, the people really got the heart here. 
Southern hospitality comes around with great warmth. 

i saw a broken man

I saw a broken man today.
Yelling alone toward no one, arms slamming through thin air, the man stood alone.

I saw a broken man today.
I wonder what broke him. The gesture of complaints was bursting out like steam.

I saw a broken man today.
Would I ever break like him? I saw him through a window, from a distance not so far.

heya there

I came to Atlanta with my sculptures.
Many people loved it, and few minds were blown.

We can get excited about cleaning trash (us) sometimes.

I've been making pendants. A lot of them. 

So far, I've made close to a hundred. 
They are pretty much all gone. 


I'll be presenting at the upcoming Chocolate and Art Show, Atlanta edition. 
I'm quite behind o updating my web.....
There's like 20 sculptures missing LOL.

so far...

I went far. 

Photography takes a bit of time when you are going far.
It's too exciting you need few days to go back and be like "ok I went too far".

I'm doing Celine. 
Is it obvious?

That geezer Terry style, which existed pre-Terry. 
More the 2014 than the recent ones. 

gen 3

My generation 3 sculptures can be distinguished by my insignia.
New ones got 3 colors for my insignia.

Discover Charles Osawa on

Discovery is interesting.
Gotta dig.

Gotta dig in the crate. And when you find and get it, you feel proud you found it.
You, discovered.

We like to be responsible for everything, like discovery and inventions.
I want to be me and remembered. Look at me, don't forget me.
Like times running out.

Time leaves everyone behind.
Can't discover yon once you're gone.

that color

Shooting Andrew Rudy again. 

I've been doing color tests.

I did single color, two colors and now I'm shooting with 3 colors.
My third color is barely visible, but it adds a highlight to the face.

I noticed that a slight tonal difference in color value makes big difference. 


Im selling trash

Lucy in the sky with diamond?
That 70's trip.

Welcome to California, is the vibe here.

The whole psychedelic culture is here in the west.
