Viewing the whole process of eL Seed's artwork from start to finish was incredible.

April 15th, 2016, 6pm

He stood on top of a genie machine

with a spray paint bottle

and a map in mind

he made crazy lines

& splattered on a wall

of dull shadows and brown bricks

I think; never

have I seen something

like it


I was sitting on clouds

thinking of how

I felt almost invisible to me,

but so visible in the letters he stroked

though, I was down here

and he was up there;

lifted himself off the ground

just like he’s done many time before.

I sat and gazed for almost two days between classes and commutes at this mural in the making.

It represented me;

It represented my culture and the building of bridges between people who believe and read and write in different languages.

It is a human artwork-

Surreal and present.

It is for the masses.

It is there for those curious minds and stale hearts.

It’s there for those with flattered emotions and a knot in their shoes.

It’s there for me.

It’s there for you.

And it’s there because Sam Houston once said;

Knowledge is the food of genius. So, my son, let not any opportunity escape you to treasure knowledge.
