“Lady”

Had the pleasure of enjoying the tUnE-yArDs live yesterday at the 5TH ANNUAL ROOTS PICNIC. They didn’t disappoint. Here’s a taste in collaboration with ?uestlove, Angélique Kidjo and Akua Naru for Red Hot + FELA — a new Fela Kuti compilation by the Red Hot Organization and the (RED) campaign.

As always, you’re welcome.

Healthy Creativity with Edible Crayons

Anytime I can eat healthy while being creative is a plus. These hand-made Edible Crayons by Luxirare are actually health bars made with a good dose of nutritional ingredients. Freeze dried strawberries and raspberries for red coloring, dried carrots and apricot for orange, kiwi and pistachio for green and almonds and prunes for brown. Yummy creating.

Hispanic Heritage Festival

On Sat. Sept. 20, 2008, I took part in the Elizabeth, N.J. Hispanic Heritage Festival. We were asked to create a painting that referenced our Hispanic Heritage. I decided to create a piece entitled “Poder de la Gente”. Revolutions have occurred throughout history and have helped shape most of Latin America. The “Ten Years of Spring” depicts a period (1944-1954) of free speech and political activity, proposed land reform, and a perception that great progress could be made in Guatemala. It is a homage to the power that people’s voices have when they are united.

“Love is Pain” at the Kreme Grand Opening

I was asked by my boy C-Righteous who just opened up his third boutique shop in the heart of Newark called “Kreme“, to showcase some artwork at the Seed Gallery for his Grand Opening. So I banged out some pieces with the theme “Love is Pain“. Here are a few pics of the event and the pieces I created.

Shouts go out to my friends and family for sharing this experience. Be on the look out for some gear coming your way soon. If you are interested in any of the pieces, email me at cesar at 5in5o dot com.
