Today we’d like to introduce you to Art Racc.
Art, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
ART RACC is an Artist and Educator, and a product of Southern California. He began creating artwork at an early age, without traditional training; just a writing tablet, some pencils and his father’s mentorship at his disposal.
ART RACC is an artist, entrepreneur and fashion designer; He is the co-founder of the clothing brand Sunset & Palm Trees Clothing, a Los Angeles-based clothing company tailored to the vacation lifestyle.
Can you give our readers some background on your art?
My style cannot be lumped into a single genre; I live to express myself through self-knowledge, social issues and everyday life in my artwork. I create art for myself because I love to create and it is therapeutic. I create it for people who need to be aware of an issue we are dealing with, in particular, social justice issues. I have art that highlights Colin Kaepernick, Dylann Roof, Stephon Clark, Boondocks, abstracts and paintings of Egypt. My message is to make people aware, get them to think and become more engaged with our communities in whatever way they feel comfortable in doing that. We all came here for a purpose, we must find out what it is and execute it accordingly. My art is a way for me to analyze what I see in society and give it back to the world in my art.
Any advice for aspiring or new artists?
My advice to artists is to live in your truth. Paint from the heart no matter what message it is that you are trying to convey to your crowd. We are the creators that people look to for inspiration, insight and décor in their spaces. The one lesson I wished that I learned at an early age was to take big leaps and not to focus on what others say.
