Live From Pullman National Monument with Dr Lyn Hughes and guest Rahmaan Statik Barnes, Chicago Artist Muralist
Rahmaan Statik Barnes
Grew up on the South Side of Chicago, surrounded by urban art and public murals . Classically trained at the American Academy of Art. He is co-founder of R.K Design, a graphic art and mural collective.
Doctors save lives, police fight crime, and the artist dictates what we know as Image, Icon, and Form. I live a life-style of observation and creation. I believe that being well informed on the subject of your work and having an organized strategy produces a more intriguing work of art. I believe man has the right to choose his reality. In my reality I have chosen my own destiny; time and fate have confirmed that producing art is my positive contribution to society. The work I produce both symbolizes and creates optimism for life in our industrial society. It also challenges the over-saturation of mindless sexual and violent images in pop cultural. I put forth a passionate effort to produce art that has a spiritual, political and urban aesthetic.
I am currently creating art in cities across the world, creating art work for museums and gallery exhibitions.
