Feel Better

So I've been on my abstract kick lately. The color and brush strokes brightens up the mood. Thats why I had to call it, "Feel Better."

The Elements

This is a 4 part piece I like to call 'The Elements'. I represented the 4 elements of Hip Hop through color, patterns, and stencils. I cant take credit for this idea alone. I'd like to thank Captain Planet, Avatar the Last Airbender, and everyday people that keep that art form alive that is known as Hip Hop.
