the family of friends and artists that are supportive of the arts society we’re building is unheard of this day and age. a bit of imagination and creativity goes a very long way if you believe in yourself. others will see how hard you’re trying and then begin lending a helping hand or two. before you know it, the thoughts in your head are unfolding before your very eyes. the side effect is the community of free thinkers and visionaries our project gravitates.
friday the 13th was an example of that…
we held our spooky friday the 13th art show XIII in partnership with our family in knowla company & gloomy nation. we collaborated to host probably one of the coolest (we’re sure there’s many) art gatherings to grace the underground arts community of new orleans. #artcvlt xiii exhibition was out of a movie- completely a master piece of friends and lovers of the arts. it was such a honor being able to curate this gathering.
here’s the list of artists who showcased artwork: ida floreak, devin derbes, mr. balloon hands, equoni, leeaux, yoko, willo, tori benoit, yorel warr, chow.osama, & matthew castellano
here’s the list of artists who performed (order of performance): concept, abasi qadahfi, hellboy.hellboy, proper channels, e.t., austin rapbaum, tonee shark, dapper dan, shane valley, neji vibez, pauly, & djenko
many blessings for our friends at Mid City Pizza who sent some hot slices our way keeping bellies happy -there’s a special place in our hearts for you and Knowla Company.

life can be really simple if you want it to be. we over complicate a lot of things by over thinking them to death. hopefully these next few words can serve as medicine for getting your thoughts on a different wavelength.
yesterday we gathered to spend time together as brothers playing Yu-Gi-Oh! the trading card game. we sat for almost two hours going back and forth taking turns vanquishing each others monsters, falling into snares, and casting our most powerful spells. we existed in our own world inside the game and out.
we are a family. we have been growing together for quite some time. being able to spend quality time like this together makes life all the sweeter. the quality of life you desire can be met with intention. you are where you want to be. sometimes we get caught up asking for more, when in reality we have just enough all the time. it’s healthy to improve your way of life. it’s even better when you have friends that have the same progressive mindset.
surround yourself with the people who inspire you to be successful.
we found splendor through walking a block from where we sat and played cards. that’s one of the many perks of living in New Orleans, you don’t have to look too far to spot beauty or some form of art. its exists all around us. all the time. every dynamic.
we turn every moment into opportunity.
the sunset matched our iconic evening together. brilliance and bliss. this is what it meant to simply exist. shortly after we paraded to the Healing Center where we awaited the Monday night poetry. it’s always such a pleasing environment at these poetry night gatherings. you are literally missing out if you’re neglecting that atmosphere.
