Get Acquainted - Robert Peterson [ART]
My name is Robert Peterson
What inspires you ?
My past struggles & hopes of future success inspire me.
What is your favorite piece of work and why?
I have a few favorite pieces of art work that I've done to be honest. My painting of MLK titled "7089" inspired by his arrest in 1956 for their leadership during the Montgomery Bus Boycott & the two pieces I did of Pac & BIG. I use to listen to both of them all throughout my junior high years which to me where among the most important years of my life.
What does the hip hop culture and it's elements mean to you?
Raised in Oklahoma my exposure to the arts was extremely limited, I was introduced to amazing artist like Basquiat, Warhol, Murakami & others by listening/watching greats I like Jay Z, Pharrell & Swizz.
How does hip hop influence you as an artist?
I tend to lock myself in the house and zone out to artist ranging from J. Cole & Kendrick Lamar to Fabolous, Jay, Game & Slim Thug my list goes on and on. Something about a dope track just brings life to a canvas.
