RETNA MAC, VERSE MEMORIAL

June 22nd, 2009

Mac and I just exhibited this piece of a good friend and fellow artist who past away 3 years to the day that we did this piece. He was a great friend and very instrumental partner in my early piecing history.  We shared a lot of great times, sad times, and painful times.  When I went to the funeral and saw him laying there in the casket, I saw a beautiful image of a man who’s life was cut short, I felt that I would have liked to do a painting from it but felt it wasn’t the right time to take a photo.  Months later I was hanging with his Brother Gil, and had asked him if anyone had taken a photo, he came back and brought me the photo that I had wanted to take.  Time past and it was put away for the right moment. Mac and I had this show planned at Mid City Arts.  So when It came time to do the piece, I remembered him, the date just happened to fall on the same time he was killed, and He was actually shot right next door, so all the signs where pointing to a piece to celebrate his life.  Mac came thru as any good friend always does and Im grateful to him, for painting a portrait of someone who meant a lot to me and his family and crew.

The Quote on the Tux. Reads:

This was something he used to like to say:

The Wise Move In Silence:  Meadowbrook I die.

He Restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his names sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art wih me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head in oil. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

We will miss you forever our beautiful brother, son, uncle and friend.

The talented cats from The Seventh Letter hipped us to the fact that a RETNA (Juxtapoz #78) piece is in the background of a feature for Seth Macfarland’s new movie “The Hangover.” RETNA always hangs with the best of ‘em, but it’s always nice to know even big move execs have good taste in art too.
