Miles Wickham aka RESKEW

 

....... was the creative director and head artist for the personally funded ego-profit exterior design and urban resuscitation foundation. Only starting with crayons and watercolors, expressing his conditioned essence straight from the solar plexus with abstract designs, Reskew regressed deeper into his ego mask as he went through failed attempts at the basic assimilation processes bestowed by society. Eventually ending up under the wing of the notorious All City Crew from Brooklyn in 2006, he expanded his early childhood habit of  drawing on walls to marking hundreds of locations throughout the city. Six months into the rampage, after meeting the ACC, he was apprehended and tried in court for doodling in a dark, dirty subway tunnel on the L line in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The District Attorney requested he and his design team be locked in a cage for one year for their organized crime.

Without the penal systems’ direct intention, Miles has changed directions, looking to find true freedom of expression from his Self while still retaining his ego for the initial survival purposes it was intended for by nature.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hello. Im Miles. I'm a self taught visual artist. I have been making art since i was a kid, and began doing graffiti in 1999. I started teaching in 2007 and have since taught all ages, all over the world, in person and through youtube tutorials. 

For me in making art there is a reverence for beauty and an honor and respect for the infiniteness of life. There is potential expressed everywhere in nature, through animals, flowers, landscapes, molecular structure, and all else. Creating art is a celebration and humble honoring of the ability for that potential to be refined, cultivated, and expressed. A life dedicated to art is a life dedicated to love. Exalting the power of life itself in awe and humility.
