I use imagination a lot, so this playlist helps add a filtered lense to my imagination as I work. It also serves as a cadence, & silky narrative to my flow of consciousness.

Jeremiah Onifadé is best known as the artist The Hashface. Onifadé is a Dallas based artist who is making a name for himself, creating works that explore our energies & how it best benefits our environment whether positively or negatively. His art stands somewhere between visual art as therapy & global commerce. He has used his works to raise funds for HIV/AIDS, inspire youths in community peer programs, motivate hospital patients in therapy & teach others about living positively. As a military veteran & a victim of community riot while growing up in Kaduna Nigeria, he draws from prior experience when creating his works then merges it with found knowledge on Matisse, Cézanne, Basquiat, Murakami, Modigliani, Michelangelo Lodovico, Giacometti, Kaws & Condo while employing the use of acrylic, charcoal, canvas, porcelain, concrete, fabric etc. amongst others, to pit the essence of adrenalized actions & its positive/negative impact.
