Colorful Memories by Inspired Cre8tivity

Colorful Memories by Inspired Cre8tivity

My name is Jessica and I am an artist, and many pieces of my artwork are heavily influenced with the use of color. My inspiration comes from all things that bring me joy and happiness, which include cute characters from childhood cartoons, anime, movies and video games: but sometimes, I get random urges to create unique characters of my own such as sad robots fueled with candy, graffiti rabbits spraying “love” cans and handsome gorillas wearing crowns—with all having a splash of color of course.

Raw by Myrna Cronopio

Raw by Myrna Cronopio

Still, I Rise by Chaka Zinyemba

Still, I Rise by Chaka Zinyemba

“Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hope springing high, Still I’ll rise… You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise… I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and swelling I bear in the tide… Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave..

I rise I rise I rise” -Maya Angelou , 1978

Mark Oliver “Twist” is an emerging street artist originally from Montreal, Quebec. He draws his inspirations from the cosmos, the allure of the mystic pyramids, and imaginations of parallel universes.

Due to the fast dry time of spray paint each piece is done with speed and precision planning. There is very little room to make mistakes–especially in front of an audience.

His art is raw, urban, and distressed like your favorite pair of jeans… It tells a story in it’s imperfections and grittiness that is accomplished by being created on the streets right in front of your eyes.

Medium: spray paint and fire.
