I started Urban Poetry in 2006(ofcl. 8/9/07 Dal. Co.) as a Brand Name for my clothing line while enrolled at El Centro College, for fashion design. I choose Urban Poetry because those two words together best described me as a poet and my garments were poetic in a sense.
I, like many, who go off to design school may understand, thought because my designs were so cool, that overnight I’d be the next Michael Kors, Betsy Johnson, Tory Burch. … then reality hit! To have a successful clothing line....takes a bit more than meets the eye with a lot
of stress that comes with the territory.
So, Urban Poetry is more a fusion of the things that inspires me and the creations that comes.What does Urban Poetry mean?; Using art to provoke thought... It is finding beauty in the grim...the stories of rising from the ashes...art that is unexpected the artistry of imagination..with the common thread of urban culture. My blog will offer ispiration and information highlighting other artist that represent the essence of "Urban Poetry".
Street Poet, KRS 1....Real Hip Hop makes you think.
Welcom to hp-hop culture
Where DJ-ing, MC-ing, graffiti art, breaking
And the philosophies are expressed every day
Within the inner cities of America, and the world
You are not diong hip-hop;
You ARE HIP-HOP
