31 Oct Word To Mother x Spraying Bricks
“It was around ’98 when I first met Word To Mother. Lining up outside the courts of Summerfields Leisure Centre, Hastings, for basketball practice. Built like a racing snake, with shorts below the knees and socks pulled up to meet, he was the first kid I’d seen ever spin a ball on his finger. Immediately, at the time with him being my elder, I was amazed. 15 years on and still as humble as ever, Word To Mother is one of the worlds most respected artists.”
– Spraying Bricks
Spraying Bricks flew out with StolenSpace represented artist Word To Mother, to San Francisco, in November last year for his show ‘California Coming Home’. Outside, inside, paper, glass, salvaged wood, canvas, baseball bats, skin…Word To Mother is diverse in his medium and many of his influences are from everyday life and the positive people that surround him.
Second in the SF series from this is the first instalment from Word To Mother, whose recent body of work ‘Too Blessed To Be Stressed’ is currently on show at StolenSpace Gallery until Sunday, 9th November.
Some of Word To Mother’s work can be seen and bought from the StolenSpace online store here and prints from here.
