John Fekner – Some thoughts to ponder along the artistic path of life.

16. Creativity is a stream that runs alongside your life. Instinctively, there’s a time & place for the artist to jump in whether it’s calm, fluid or raging.

15. It is to an artist’s advantage to challenge oneself by taking risks – not foolish ones, to discover solutions in unique and unexpected ways.

14. Artists must learn to be fulfilled with an audience of one: to accept the silence of self. Once that stage is realized, vision is limitless.

13. When hope and expectation turn to disappointment, take a break from the actual work and simply refocus your creativity on centering oneself.

12. Good Vibrations: bells, teas, chimes, chanting, humming, spices, herbs and perhaps a pet. It’s all therapeutic for your mind, body and soul.

11. Stay home on either a Friday or a Saturday night. Have fun and make art. Be different.

10. Things that should change; don’t. Things that shouldn’t change; do. Change is inevitable, so be open and accepting, taking a balanced approach on the path of life.

9. Always have some hidden or quirky interest that you enjoy ‘alone’. Just you. Something that someone else might consider ‘odd’. There’s nothing wrong with ‘odd’. It is part of the journey of becoming an artist who is curious to discover new things in order to becoming complete with one self.

8. Read autobiographies of people from various fields. It might provide some advice and insight as to how they survived when they were younger and not yet established in their life’s work.

 7. Identify and participate within some other community completely separate from your home and work environment.

6. Beliefs are good. Believe in yourself, your artwork, your family, your friends and some mightier power of your choice.

5. Travel engenders new scenarios in which one meets new people and their cultures providing a learning environment of acceptability, understanding and embracing diversity throughout the world.

4. When a brilliant idea strikes you in the middle of the night or suddenly wakes you up – Never turn on the light. Keep a marker and white paper next to your bed. Write large in the dark and you will capture the true essence of the dream-thought. If you turn on the light, it prevents you from holding the magic; it disappears and you lose the essence of the fleeting thought and you wind up altering the initial idea.

3. Life is constantly changing- don’t be extreme or too rigid in your thinking, your technical process and creative art making. Allowing things to be open and fluid will allow for development, perspective and adaptability.

2. ‘Remembrance of Things Past’  Not to dwell or live in the past, but it is always important to remember the earlier stages of your growth and childhood. If you go back and visit your hometown during the daytime, it will mostly likely be a noisy and chaotic experience. But if you revisit at dawn, you might get a better sense of things really haven’t changed that much; the stillness and quiet in the early morning make it easy to rekindle memories and spark personal creativity.

1. Define your own alternate path of life and commit to it as an artist not as a ‘careerist’. The concept of ‘a career’ has all the social conditioning labels of being measured as a ‘success’ by society’s rules stamped all over it

Rain break from throwing paint at this wall in #Brewerytown. Side note, this is my first time using spray paint (besides small tags here and there). I keep telling myself “It’s probably fine because nothing matters.”

CornBread, a living piece of graffiti history, swung by to bless the little mural I’m throwing down in Brewerytown today!

Next up in the #LW2014 line up is Caroline Caldwell (hugclub here on tumblr) from Philly! She creates gentle, sloping images that still speak to her graffiti roots. 


We’re excited to bring her to ATL this summer!RSVP to the conference here.



I am humbled and excited to join the Living Walls, the City Speaks team this summer to paint a wall in Atlanta! Thanks to Mónica Campana for putting faith in me and extending the opportunity to paint alongside artists with far more experience. I think Living Walls has consistently done a exemplary job at taking risks on lesser known artists (such as myself), and it’s a high honor to join artists whom I’ve admired for such a special event.
