Afro-Punk Festival 2010

Here's my piece that I painted at this year's Afro-Punk Festival in Brooklyn. We had 2 days to paint a piece themed on "animal revolt". I chose to create a piece based on the spirits of animals during life and after death. Mixed in there is the image of Coatlicue, the Mexica Goddess of earth, life, and death.

I'm pretty proud of this piece (especially because I had to rep for the whole TYS crew solo!) and also really trying to get back to the power of the basics, eg. primary and secondary colors. I used spray paint, latex paint, Sumi ink, and graphite pencil.
