Whoa…did I make it on the latin network? Univision interview airing on Thursday morning nationwide over 100+ cities. ( “Despierta America” 7am-10am Channel 41) Many of us grew up with this channel because our abuelas, mamis, and tias watched their novelas, our abuelitos, papis, and tios caught the futbol. Occasionally we all sat around to watch that silly man Don Francisco on Sabado Gigante too. My family has come a long way. This one is for you Papito lindo!


Shout out to Meres at 5Pointz for letting me rock the interview session and do a little live painting for the piece. THANK YOU! and big ups to Shana Louallen for rocking the PR and taking behind the scenes flicks:)

Gracias Linda y Cesar! The interview was lovely. Can’t wait to see it! eeeeek….

Groundbreaking New York Artists Gather for Landmark Show
by Danya Steele

(New York City – Dec 8. 2010) On December 17 – 19, 2010, MVMT and SOH NUP INK will present a landmark exhibition of five of the most critical fixtures to the New York underground arts scene.

Artists featured include Aaron “Spaze Craft One” Lazansky, Michael “The Conscious Hustler” Cordero, Cern One YMI, TooFly and Marthalicia. The exhibit – entitled Invisible Instructions – will open with a three-day micro-festival of music, sound production workshops, midnight mixers, five-star eatery, wine spritzers and organic juices provided by ADINA. The show runs through January 8, 2011 and will be hosted at Culture Fix, a Lower East Side-based bar, boutique and gallery described by New York Times as “an integration of cocktails and chiaroscuro.”

Invisible Instructions will explore the theme of cultural influence and inspiration, with all artists creating work to represent the ‘invisible instructions’ received from the worlds around them. The talent roster is diverse. One of the featured artists – TooFly – spearheaded the Women’s Graffiti Movement of the 1990’s in New York City. Another artist, Marthalicia, is a former marine and mother who does “hyper realist paintings” that have earned her a reputation as New York’s premiere live painter. The show will also have very politically charged, graphic themes by Mikey The Conscious Hustler, whose classic “1SOUL” graphic tees have helped coined the term “artivism” in the worlds of art and social change.

Spaze Craft One, both an artist in the show and curator for the exhibit describes the opening weekend as “cutting edge, multi-dimensional work.” With a concert series including performances by Black Hasidic rapper Y-Love (unsurprisingly, he shares management with Matisyahu), guest DJ’s who’ve toured with DangerMouse (Gnarls Barkley), and a two-day workshop event showing teens and adults alike how to create organic clothing and sound (all before having their sounds played back in live concert), this isn’t your standard art show.

Tickets to the music and eco-friendly clothing workshops (held December 18 – 19) can be purchased at with all adult ticket sales going to sponsor teen workshops. Limited edition art displayed in the exhibit will be available for purchase at rates both “affordable” and more traditionally priced.

Michael Cordero is co-producer of Invisible Instructions and is an artist, educator and entrepreneur born and raised in Brooklyn. Michael is the creator of 1Soul Designs t-shirt line, co-owner of Fresthetic (a gallery/boutique in Williamsburg known for its “inclusive vs. exclusive vibe”), and Brand Cultivator at MVMT, a business incubator for innovative social change projects.

Aaron Lazansky, the producer of Invisible Instructions, has been spent over 15 years working as a key player in the New York City multi-media arts scene. He is an artist, educator, entrepreneur and newly elected program advisor for the Hip- Hop Education Center at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development.

Just finished watching the Garbage Warrior documentary and I’m so inspired!!! Michael Reynolds is my HERO. This finally makes all these radical ideas, and feelings I’ve had all these years make sense…

The film

What do beer cans, car tires and water bottles have in common? Not much unless you’re renegade architect Michael Reynolds, in which case they are tools of choice for producing thermal mass and energy-independent housing. For 30 years New Mexico-based Reynolds and his green disciples have devoted their time to advancing the art of “Earthship Biotecture” by building self-sufficient, off-the-grid communities where design and function converge in eco-harmony. However, these experimental structures that defy state standards create conflict between Reynolds and the authorities, who are backed by big business. Frustrated by antiquated legislation, Reynolds lobbies for the right to create a sustainable living test site. While politicians hum and ha, Mother Nature strikes, leaving communities devastated by tsunamis and hurricanes. Reynolds and his crew seize the opportunity to lend their pioneering skills to those who need it most. Shot over three years and in four countries, Garbage Warrior is a timely portrait of a determined visionary, a hero of the 21st century.

Earthship n. 1. passive solar home made of natural and recycled materials 2. thermal mass construction for temperature stabilization. 3. renewable energy & integrated water systems make the Earthship an off-grid home with little to no utility bills.

Biotecture n. 1. the profession of designing buildings and environments with consideration for their sustainability. 2. A combination of biology and architecture.

Extremely happy SADE is coming back into our lives!!! Today 2.8.2010 is the release of her album SOLDIER OF LOVE. This is one artist who’s album I am going to purchase with every single cent. Not only has she stayed true to her heart, sound, and style she’s DOPE. Every time I hear her songs is like I’m in drifting into the swirls of the wind and into the deep blue water for a bitter sweet surrender. Here are some of my favorite Sade songs, including some of her new joints…


Album: Lovers Rock

Back to the grind!!! Finally catching up on life…I wanted to take this time to post a dope portrait video my hommies Mike Vargas, and Moni Pineda from Friends We Love rocked on my birthday last month. It’s UP! It’s not easy being in front of a camera eeek! but I really dig & appreciate these 120seconds mini series they’ve been working on with some of today’s dope visual artists, poets, entrepenuers, musicians, and dancers. Moments matter, and you gotta make every second count! I am so honored to be your friend guys;) thank youuuuu for letting me share my thoughts, and passion on building…

Toofly, Artist :: 120 Seconds from on Vimeo.

and if you don’t know now you know…

Friends We Love began with a desire to document the inspiration, motivation and creative process of our talented friends in NYC and around the world. Our Artist Profiles quickly blossomed into four other shows. 120 Seconds soon followed as an open platform to share personal thoughts and passions. Recently, we aligned with the highly reputable Jonathan LeVine Gallery to produce our Off the Wall series featuring interviews with exhibiting, contemporary artists. While En Vivo captures the essence of some of our favorite live shows, eMotion Pictures serves as an experimental lab where we explore and capture moments through visual poetry.
