Maximino Rentería de la Cruz

Ceremonia del Peyote en la Sagrada Tierra de Wirikuta
Nayarit, México, 2006


The tragedy of the leaves

I awakened to dryness and the ferns were dead,
the potted plants yellow as corn;
my woman was gone
and the empty bottles like bled corpses
surrounded me with their uselessness;
the sun was still good, though,
and my landlady's note cracked in fine and
undemanding yellowness; what was needed now
was a good comedian, andcient style, a jester
with jokes upon absurd pain; pain is absurd
because it exists, nothing more;
I shaved carefully with an old razor
the man who had once been young and
said to have genius; but
that's the tragedy of the leaves,
the dead ferns, the dead plants;
and I walked into a dark hall
where the landlady stood
execrating and final,
sending me to hell,
waving her fat, sweaty arms
and screaming
screaming for rent
because the world has failed us

"I believe that nowadays there are more artists who (like myself) initially found great inspiration in graffiti art and have taken those disciplines and applied them in new ways thanks to new media, photoshop, illy and the web. These artists are branching out with these new tools and inspiring someone who may not have been exposed to this element first had.

Graffiti has long been the step-child of the art scene, the art worlds back-alley & dirty little secret, it's great to see it less frowned upon world-wide as more people help educate on the stigma that sometimes clouds one's perception. I believe that graffiti art is probably the only known aggressive, competitive form of artwork. Where you constantly push yourself to be better than the best. It's the art-form that coined the phrase "toy" for those considered whack.

I sometimes apply this aggression in how I work, I try to push myself always, and with what I can see, other artists share the same emotion and are making graffiti culture really relevant in any art scene that exists today, believe that."
