Word up- S.1 Eps.1 International artist Red talks about "The Stimulus Package Tour".
RepNewarkDaily sat down with Red to discuss his most recent project the “Stimulus Package Tour”.
We gained insight on the artist philosophical views, how he uses it, and his own life experience as a portrait within his artwork.
We also explored topics about race, censorship, identity, violence,and the social/political paradigm of the black experience-within communities like Newark NJ. Much of Reds art extends from those topics.
