NOBODY

TMNKThe Me Nobody Knows aka Nobody is a contemporary American artist who uses his voice as a form of positive propaganda – not necessarily to advance a political agenda (although I would argue that there is that, too, as evidenced by the many socio-political issues his paintings-with-text draw upon for content – racism, classism, sexism, third-world plight, first-world arrogance, war and peace – one has only to re-view the small painting I displayed at the very beginning of this essay for an example), but more to share his vision of how things could be, if only …

It is from this juxtaposition of reality against hope, of probability against possibility, of the serious managed through satire, and of damage versus renewal, wherein TMNK draws his use of symbols, glyphs and iconography, his choice of colors and the balance of the canvas, even the jarring coincidence of materials and layered assemblages which, for no other reason sometimes than his willing them to be, seem to marry.  His is a world which celebrates grace in its own transience, of our sentience sullied and then cleansed, and above all, our clamoring to exceed the dichotomy between our pathology, and our own biological imperative toward morality.

I am the defiant thread, in this great tapestry called life, who has decided to weave instead of being woven, and to boldly proclaim himself a great artist. My rebellious, markers and aerosol cans, do not need nor seek your
permission, as I  converse with generations yet unborn. To you I may be nobody. Okay, then undeterred and unaffected I say to you, “Nobody did it!”, as I leave my mark on the world for all eternity.
TMNK’s art was recently featured in both Vibe Magazine and YRB Magazine, is in the permanent collection of the Fleming Museum in Vermont, and was selected for an exclusive line of t-shirts for apparel manufacture American Eagle Outfitters. With Solo Shows in New York, Italy, and Norway this so-called “nobody” has amassed an international following for his unique brand of intellectual urban contemporary art.
