This is Chicago. This is Baller. This is Ball is life. Literally. This Comes with basketballs rim and net but comes disassembled. The total weight of piece is 11lbs. + This is an anti-violence take your problems to the court/hoop instead of shooting each other over your different colors like is happening here in Chicago. If you know this town or even heard of it, you will understand this piece. This is not what Chicago should be but it is what Chicago has become. Let's see if we can change it. For now though, let's do some art to help the problem. Proceeds from this piece will go to families who's children have become victims of the senseless gun violence that plagues our city.

Please look at each piece separate. Each piece has its own identity. It's own characteristics. Every stroke is different. Almost every idea is a big change from the one before and the one ahead of it. I am a conceptual artist. Sometimes it's a film and sometimes it's a drawing of a pigeon on a dirty, broken, backboard. Whatever I am feeling at the time I have to go run and paint or write. I think of an image and get it down on paper or canvas 70-95% of what was in my head. I am interested in art. I love it.
