UNEEK RADIO “NEW” Season 9 Ep.1 “EXPRESS YO’ SELF!” 11.27.18


 Artistry is the creative skill of an artist, writer, actor, or musician.

The Kween wants to kick off the new season paying hommage to an  artistic icon.. The late and great “Keith Haring“.

Haring joined a long but sporadic lineage of 20th-century artists who brought elements of popular culture, “low art” and non-art elements into the formerly exclusive “high art” spaces of museums and galleries. He drew on the techniques and locales of street-based art such as graffiti and murals, employed bright and artificial colors, and kept imagery accessible in order to grab the eyes and minds of viewers and get them both to enjoy themselves and to engage with important concerns. Along with his artist contemporaries Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf, Haring opened the field of possibility for how seemingly simple and even cartoony elements by self-taught or less-schooled artists might be appreciated.

On this episode of #UneekRadio the Kween has a few special guest coming to the station to promote a very special event taking place at the SF LGBT Center  on December 8th.
