Art Primo | Folk Life | 179 Present : Surface Elements: Charms Interview

Charms big heart houses the childlike imagination we lose as we grow up with the talent of a master. The element of mischievousness lingers on the smiles of his characters leaving the viewer curiouser and curiouser...

What artist movement has been particularly influential in your development
CH: The 1980s hip hop movement had a huge impact on my art development.  I was a skater and tagger, I had no idea about hip hop and subway cars, or pieces.  I was hipped to this phenomenon by the security guard at my apartments in Arizona.  I was introduced to classic hip hop music and he found a copy on VHS of beat street.  I never knew that an art was alive.  This opened my eyes to graffiti culture and writing on the walls.  I have been influenced by comics and the classics, but never before had I seen something so beautiful and free.  It was the first time I felt free.

How/ Why did you start writing Graffiti?
CH: Same as above. 

There are a lot of kids that have aspirations of being artists, what advice would you have for them in pursuing this?
CH: There are a lot of kids that have aspirations of being artists, what advice would you have for them in pursuing this?I would let kids know that art is one of the highest forms of communication and to utilize all tools, like internet, scholarships and school.  The street is a form of education that has a steep learning curve.  And if you really want to be an artist.  Figure out the message you are trying to convey and work toward communicating that in the best way you see fit.  There is no excuse for lazy in the age of technology.  And stay true to your heart.  Money and Power are illusions and pitfalls for the soul.
