Continuous exposure to paint is toxic to your body.
Since I started writing again, I’ve had several writers seriously talk to me about the toxic effects of paint and what to do about it. I had these issues also but I see that it is quite common in our world.
When I first met my holistic medicine mentor over 15 years ago, one of the first things he noticed was my toxicity levels were causing my health problems. At the time I was experiencing fatigue, anger, depression, weight gain, digestion problems, low sex drive and sexual ability, heart irregularities, joint injuries that wouldn’t heal, frequent colds and flu, allergies, skin problems, memory problems, and my brain just didn’t work well. I had learning disabilities and I was failing out of medical school. I was fucked and it seemed like I was on my way to an early death! Continue reading →
I call myself Dr. Greed because I really am a doctor, a holistic doctor. I’ve had a lot of health challenges when I was younger and I attribute some of them to years of using spray paint without proper protection.
As a resident of Portland, Oregon, I am excited to have such an event close to town! The mural laws in Portland limit the painting a graffiti artist can do So I have to travel to do street art. I hope that this event helps to promote graffiti art in Oregon and Washington. Thanks to all and sponsors of this event including Art Primo.
As a graffiti artist that has been wanting to flex my creative muscles again after a 15 year break to become a doctor and teacher, I am thankful for the help of Jeffrey Miller from the White Space Gallery in Portland, Oregon’s Pearl District for the support. After a rather large turnout for my first ever showing of graffiti art on canvas in August, Jeffery Miller has asked me to have another show for January’s first Thursday art walk in NW Portland. The show is on January 2, 2014 6pm at the White Space Gallery.
I took some video footage of the happenings there. Hope fully you can get a sense of what a great event these guys put on! There was a large attendence form former and present NY artists. Definitely some heavy hitter from Denver, California and more.
Here are some great links to what was going on at the mile high city in the heatwave!
I was recently asked by someone if I usually liked the stuff that I create? This artist was asking me because they were struggling with their own style. A lot of the time I don’t like what I do… to the point where people like ASIS one would say, “Let me guess… you hate it, right?”. I actually like my work only about 25% of the time… and if you think I’m whack, good!

I am a perfectionist. I always find fault with my style, my painting, my colors and my skill. This can be a gift though! I am always striving to do better. I always compare myself to the top guns in the graff world… I should be like them! I think that any good artist is their own worst critic. This pushes that artist to improve, to evolve (or be created if you are a fundamentalist christian graff writer). Continue reading →
