Artwork by Flewnt Sevens
“I believe a true work of art has a life and a soul. Human as I am, I can only attempt to create it. I never quite succeed. For true art is not human, but divine. Nevertheless, it is that quest for a masterpiece that makes me who I am. I paint pictures to give hope joy.” -Flewnt Sevens
When most people think of graffiti, they think of outdoor murals and tags created with spray paint. While the streets are the most popular place to write graffiti, the truth is that writing in graffiti can be done with just a writing utensil and blank canvas or recycled material.
Flewnt creates with many sizes and mediums. He was inspired to create a collection of smaller pieces that incorporate all his style and depth. He decided to create the baby collection, which he makes from scratch with recycled wood and materials. They are each raw and unique. Each quality piece employs two or three dimensions and multiple colors. In many cases, 10 or more layers of paints are used to complete a piece. Flewnt believes ART outlives it creator and functions like a DNA sample which identifies the artist and expresses his message.
Green Denim Initiative loves Flewnt Sevens’s artwork – especially the denim pieces, located just down the street from us in Venice Beach! Contact Flewnt@gmail.com for your own Flewnt Sevens custom piece!
