Art Primo | Folk Life | 179 Present : Surface Elements: Maxwell H. Interview

Maxwell’s linear work translates exquisitely into the 3Dimensional world in which we live. His portfolio encompasses canvas work, interactive installations, sculpture, and murals. Truly a Jack of All Trades. Read on for more info; 

What artist movement has been particularly influential in your development
M: Established artist such as Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt, and Joel Shapiro have been huge influences in the development of my practice. I was drawn to the elegance of simple forms and modular units. The scale of their work and use of space has been something I have admired. The Minimalist movement in general helped develop my intrigue in the use of space and form.  

How/ Why did you start writing Graffiti?
M: I was about 13 years old when I started becoming interested in graffiti. There are so many influences that drew me towards graffiti, but the biggest influence has been the ability to work on a large scale. I have always been interested in drawing as a kid, but once I had the ability to paint on a large scale, I was hooked. There is nothing more satisfying than painting something that is as tall as you can reach and as wide as you can go. Growing up there was no availability for working on murals or having the chance to make something on a large scale. I resorted to graffiti, it was my outlet.

There are a lot of kids that have aspirations of being artists, what advice would you have for them in pursuing this?
M: My advice to the younger generations is to never stop drawing and painting. Continue to develop your artistic practice.
