Sinuous Magazine welcomes our new guest contributor, Imani Brammer , who captured art, words and sounds at Paint and Poetry in Brooklyn this past weekend.
On Saturday, at 3rdEye(Sol)ation in Brooklyn, NY, Paint and Poetry was pure creative bliss and wonderment.
Created by Mojo Disco and hosted by Scott Nigel Morris Guscott and Cristal Joshua , the event exuded nothing but highly energized positive beings together in one small venue.
The show was broken into sections, which began with a set of spoken word poets and emcees including The Nomads , Ro Williams , Saroya and Yahiness .
Surrounding the exhilarating crowd were afro-centric works of art done by young black painters such as Renee Jackson , Shawnette “Shawn G.” George and Theo Mighty .
During intermissions the DJ played everything from house music, to rap, to hip-hop and then dancehall. The crowd took no hesitation in dancing and networking with one another. After intermissions, the floor opened for the open mic segment of the night.
People sold jewelry in the back, a tattoo artist performed her craft diligently as people stood in line for their turn at a tattoo. Cameras flashed throughout the night as individuals posed with duck lips and peace signs.
Paint and Poetry was filled with old school hip-hop, positive vibes and innovative talent. A grand event filled with brilliance and lovely spectacles, the night can be described as incense burning beneath water colored flower orchids, a symphony of melodious rhythm in a sea of high vibrations, a rain drop as the dot to an “I,”—pure poetry— paint and poetry .
