Curtis uses the same marks and faces in his graffiti to create an understanding of his own incarceration 10 years ago. He is no longer able to maintain a distance from himself in these works. Instead, he is visibly bare. You can see him in the studio working out these feelings, understanding himself as a person who is evolving but also an artist. What do you bring from your past with you? What are you feeling in the moment? What can we all understand about feelings, individual desires and how to use them as a template?

From his early years to his rise to become a truly unique contemporary artist, this is someone who is charting their own path. And he has literally shown us the blueprint for how he is doing this. —Evan Pricco
