Artwork by Richard Angelo Runfola
Kyng responded, “I got this. I love it.”
Kyng took some moments to craft his words, find his voice, and express himself to the fullest being inspired by the artwork. He sent me this,
I feel vibrations.
Deep inside my inner conscious is a realm unvisited by man, beasts and aliens.
No one understands where I come from. Not even myself.
If I had to describe this place I would use colors.
Purple for the passion I feel when I write, Black for the void that fills up my life.
Gray for the smoke that I blow to relax, Yellow for the good times I had a while back.
Red for the fury I feel towards injustice, White for my positivity and pureness, I let no one touch it.
No one understands me. I am an alien.
No one gets the way I feel, I feel differently.
I feel colors in vibrations.
This was a happy moment for me because his words made me feel something deep inside. His words showed me how my art can be used as a method of self expression. His writing proved to me that written word can make art so much more meaningful and powerful. The way in which his poetry danced with my artwork proved to me that there is a method of communication between creators of all kind that is charged with emotion and expression that allows two beings to connect on such a pure level.
Kyng helped me realize the importance of connecting and collaborating with other artists, speaking the same language of creativity. However, he also inspired me to look at design differently. In his work I feel colors in vibrations he made me realize that if I wanted to design a room based off of my art I would need to do much more than find colors and patterns that match my work. He made me realize that I need to write and express myself about how the art makes me feel on the inside, how the art makes me relate to my surroundings, how my art connects to more than just the colors and composition. I think that digging deep through written words will allow me to make connections that greatly empower my design decisions.
