About The Art
When I first envisioned the Barnyard Graphic back in 1989, I pictured a Peaceful-Looking, Warren Kimble-ish Folk Art Painting of Animals on a farm. Contrary to what has been perpetuated in some video, I was never against the Rocco / McKee Barnyard Art. My initial reaction to it was definitely one of concern, I just didn’t want the message of my Love for Animals to be turned into some joke. But when Rocco explained the “Animal Farm” concept of the Graphic to me, I was all in, and I have Always backed the Art 100%! I had never seen a Skateboard Graphic like it before, and I knew we had something Very Special.
Through the years, I have always thought it would be worth going back to my original concept, but I have never found the right Artist or Inspiration to really push the idea through, that is until I met ISHI. Okay, so this is clearly not American Folk Art, it’s actually something better, it’s Art by a Member of the #StreetPlantBattalion, a Friend, and someone whose Art I Greatly Admire and Value. When I met ISHI and saw His Art, I knew He was the Right Artist to take my original idea of Love, Peace, Compassion, and Unity and bring it to Life.
Like when I saw the original McKee Barnyard Art in 1989, seeing this ISHI Barnyard Art for the first time really made a Deep Impression upon me, and the more I look at it, the More I See and Feel. What a Beautiful Piece of Art, and Introduction to ISHI as an Artist for Street Plant.
Thank You ISHI! Much Love to You and Qoo!!!!
