Urban Warrior (He that makes Sounds)

Kef(Keif) Parker's avatar Kef(Keif) Parker

What started as small steps has morphed into large leaps. My original style of hand sown Leather and other materials has morphed into sculptural welded steel." How We Move " (the three walking red figures) is my first out doors sculptural steel peice (8.5ft x 36ft x 14"). These peices are anchored in the Detroit community on a large vacant lot near a corner . The idea is to create differnt individualize art forms in neigborhoods were there is no arts . My attempt is to create a strong cultural awareness in this community. Awake (He that makes the Sounds) is a Strong Urban Warrior Design Sculpture . This piece was designed to evoke. I used Auto CADD to create and cut from steel 1 - 8ft Male form. Using scrap metals from pervious projects I used the leftovers to adorn the warrior form with plus adding marble, ram horns ,glass beads, plactics, a dried rams skull, cow bone, goat horns, steel tubing, chain etc.
