On Saturday, June 11th, 2011 we will be hosting the 10th Annual B-Boy BBQ in Philly. Since it’s inception in 1997, POSE 2, has taken this event from a local hip-hop gathering to the caliber of a world class cultural event. This yearly experience continues to grow bigger and better each year attracting individuals from California, New York, Japan, Europe and Australia. It is an oppurtunity for people of all walks of life to exper…ience all aspects of hip-hop culture from graffiti to breakdancing, emceeing and deejaying. Every year there is influx of 400-500 people of all races and ethnicities to the site of the B-Boy BBQ where they can witness local, national and internationally renowned artists in action and shop the nearly 100 vendors selling everything from spraypaint and clothing to food and face painting. This event is in the tradition of Rock Steady Day, Meeting of Styles and other large scale hip-hop events.

ML: Can you tell us a little bit about the backdrop here?
LR: The “Big Head” was a real fun piece for me. I love incorporating the environment into my pieces. I came around the corner taking a pee break one day and I was like damn those windows could be glasses.
ML: What influences your art the most?
LR: I think that my environment really influences my art. Living in an urban place like Trenton keeps things real for me. I try to keep a little grit in all my pieces. Also, painting with different people really teaches me a lot. I have learned most of what I know from other graffiti artists.
ML: Do you enjoy collaborating with other artists?
LR: I really like to collaborate with different artists. It makes it fun and when done well it brings the strengths and styles of different artists together to create a stronger piece of art than could be done alone. One thing I have learned from years of collaborating is that not everyone can work together. It helps to have similar artistic visions or a willingness to be open minded and adaptive.
