NAME: VINCE MAXIMIN

AGE: 21

JOINED Cre8TiveYouTH*INK: 2010

Vince is one of the first Cre8tiveYouTH*ink members, working on every one of the group’s projects to date. He joined the group as a sophomore at the Brooklyn High School of the Arts. As he practiced graffiti and street art from a young age, this current project is close to his heart. Vince is currently a second year student at Parsons with a focus on fine arts. He hopes to bridge his interest in street art with his studies, which stress a more traditional focus on painting, drawing, and sculpture.

Each week, we will interview members of The Art School Without Walls, Vol. 6 to learn more about the apprentices, their journey as artists and their aspirations

 

The first round of three interviews features two of Cre8tiveYouTH*ink’s earliest members, and one of its youngest. Check out the following couple of snippets below from Moise Joseph’s interview and then read the rest on Niborama.

Did you know about Martha Cooper’s “Street Play” project?

Moise: I wasn’t aware of Martha Cooper’s work before Jerry showed us the image but I was very happy with it. Then Chris Stain explained how the boy in the photo would salvage bike parts to make something his own and this is exactly what we do as artists.

What advice would you give to other young artists?

Moise: As long as you really look, you’ll see something new, something no one else sees.
