Brayden and Queen Latifah
Brayden dropping off a work for the Queen of being one of the dopest most down to earth people doing their thang in Hollyweird. Quit honestly she is probably doing it in one of the most sincere ways possible in this crazy city with the façade of lights and glam.
Official Artist Statement:
When I first approach a work, I look at it how a programmer approaches encryption, I strive to create something rather complex that would be near impossible to duplicate. On the Macro scale the works that I create delve into the essence of a smaller story with in the larger context of a greater story line when looking at the work further back. A good example would be the story happening on a street corner in Los Angeles, then when the viewer pulls out to an aerial view they might see a bigger story going on when seeing the entire city. When you look close at the thousands of images I use to create my collages you will understand. A lot of my works also examine culture, and I like pay tribute to some of the figures that have had a great impact on popular culture in general.
