Mural Artist: Isiah Lattimore

What I love most about painting is that its been around for literally thousands years and it never goes stale. The act of being an artist doesn’t change, but rather the external influences that impact the arts do. The creative process gets passed down from generation to generation maintaining its integrity. It is the burden of each new class of artist to use these lessons to adapt to the current challenges on their world. Our job is to honor and reflect the giants before us upon whose shoulders we stands, and to make enough of a contribution to the conversation of painting to inspire the next wave of creative youth. What defines each new era of artist is how well we can carry that touch, and take it to places never seen before.
