The Southern Visionary….
“I looked at my son and thought that I could portray him in my artwork in ways that I knew he would enjoy. When my son became the focal point the rest of it was easy. I thought about what I can do to make this peice stand out. I included everything that he loves." - Quake the Creator
“That was a big moment. I honestly don’t really have a lot of mural work in Atlanta. For Fabian (@occasionalsuperstar) to reach out to me, that being the first one I worked on, and for what it stood for, it was a really big impact not just for the city but also for the culture and for us as black people.” - Quake the Creator
“I love the freedom. I’ve worked every job under the sun. Every job I’ve worked, no matter how good I thought it would be for me, eventually my spirit and my mind pushed me out of it. That showed me that this is what I need to be doing.” - Quake the Creator
“I can remember the exact moment I fell in love with art. I can remember what grade it was, it was first grade, we were in art class, I went to Love T. Nolan Elementary in College Park. Nowadays kids are being told that artwork doesn’t pay the bills. They are programing into the kids that the higher your wage the happier, established, and stable you will be. We clearly see everyday that that’s not the case. Why not teach kids that you should also remember your mind, your heart, and your freedom. Don’t feel like you are confined to one thing to make a good life for yourself. I want to inspire them.” - Quake the Creator
If there is one thing that I learned about Quake, it’s that he loves his community and is always trying to find a way to give back to Atlanta and the art world. He uses his gifts to inspire others and leave an impact.
Thank You for stopping by!
