Recap of Rebekah Miles Show

“Women are the Creators of Life and Children are our  Future”- Rebekah Miles

On November 12, 2016, The Arts Works Gallery located at 509 Sullivan Street, Miami Arizona showcased “Rebekah Miles- Fine Art Photography”, her First Solo Exhibit; a milestone for this young and talented Apache Woman. It was such a privilege to be able to attend and support her as I was in the middle of a self discovery journey during this time over in Arizona.

The stars must have aligned for this special night, as I happened to be visiting the San Carlos Apache Reservation, my good friend and Apache Artist Doug Miles, knew I was in his reservation for the week and kindly invited to such a special moment for his daughter’s career.

As you know by now, my mission in life to uplift and support young women in the Arts, I had been invited to the Apache Rez to document Art and Culture and it was an interesting twist as I was able to cover her event. Seeing a younger generation of Native American Artists still inspired by their culture and as Rebekah has stated the importance of her works. As one sees her photography’s subject matter are always women, when I asked Rebekah if this was a mere coincidence, she shared the importance in highlighting Women and Children because they are the Future, as a Woman creates Life, the Children get passed on the Language, tradition and live on for generations to come.

Rebekah Miles exhibit was an intimate setting, close friends, family and supporters made the night as vivid and personal as her body of works displayed at The Arts Works Gallery.  Every photo had its own story, its own highlighted beauty and rich colors, a twist of Contemporary Pop Art and traditional Native Women all wrapped up in a time frame where both worlds meet and create a breathtaking still life of their every day lives. My new fond Din’e Brothers from Hip Hop Group Forbidden Theory performed throughout the show too, big shout to you guys! Really exciting to see young artists collaborating together for Rebekah; you deserve the best! Thank you for welcoming us with open arms to your first solo exhibit, shout out to artist Paul Daniel for welcoming me into your Reservation and Doug Miles for inviting us for this event.

Much Love & Respect,

Recap of the Cannabis Show @ Infinity Room!

On January 28th, Paul Stewart and Over the Edge Gallery kicked off the year with the Cannabis Art Show which was located at the infamous Infinity Room in conjunction with Delicious Pizza located at 5413 West Adams Blvd. Los Angeles Califas.

Paul Stewart  partnered up with major Cannabis companies in the industry to bring to the public a massive line up of artists, Graffiti artists and special DJ appearances.  Along this collaboration show featured a heavy hitter artist line up with OG Slick, Michael Miller, Eric “Cre8” Walker, Keo, Lauralee Benjamin, Petal, Jennifer Korsen, Mr. Trixter, Sanecorner, Somehoodlum, Adria Cruel, Xistheweapon, Style One, WizRok, Gas, Sebastien Walker, The MadTwiinz, Phever, Bihno, Antonio and Isaac Pelayo.

This was an excited event for me as it was my first time working along with OG Paul Stewart, coming up with a fresh Cannabis theme along the beautiful and talented Tasha Nguyen who was in charge of all the DOPE vendors. If you attended this event then you all agree with me that the dopest part of the event was walking thru the back of the Infinity Room to the spot of vendors such as TGD, PotRocks, Legion of Bloom, Stonedgamers which was a popular hit with the public that night! It was a surreal experience to see all the Cannabis themed vendors, pastries, drinks, video games, bong hits, and dope vinyl records while listening to fresh DJ’s throughout the night; the final thought: Oh shit, this is really happening in Cali, Smoke Up!

Big Ups to our Fresh Los Angeles Hip Hop Heads, Cannabis Vendors, Artists, the Sponsors PBR, photographer E5D Zine for some of these great moments captured. Shout out to my fam from Cholos Try, Scar and Irene, thank you guys for always coming thru to show love and support. Here’s to more nights Up in Smoke, Tunes, Arte and Good People. Waddup Sista HailStorm, Petal, Gas, Wizrok, OG Cre8, Lea, My Mija Tatyana Ali,Korsen who stole the space in the Infinity Room with her massive Cannabis Art Piece which was used throughout the night as a backdrop. Just to show you that when creative genuine people get together, unforgettable events like this happen.

Much Love & Respect,
