“By re-purposing tools utilized to create uncommissioned Graffiti, I address a paradox in the identity of Graffiti as an art movement within the context of modern Art History. Graffiti is the most up-and-coming art movement in this century. Its current form/practice started in the United States and has been spreading around the world for nearly 50 years, yet remains largely unrecognized by mainstream society as a legitimate school of art such as Modernism or Impressionism.
Arranging into traditional art forms, such as sculptures and paintings, the very instruments employed in the act and practice of Graffiti now question the complexity between the movement of Graffiti itself and its perception alongside other art movements in history. These works, which feature used spray paint cans, inks dripped from refill bottles in combination with resin, acrylic and enamel, represent comical, implausible, and authentic scenarios in the life of a Graffiti artist. Monthly subscriptions allow my patrons to join the journey while I continue creating and pushing boundaries in the expression of these concepts.”  -Emerald


Born in South Miami during the mid-1980’s, Emerald (also known as Echo or Lady Echo) grew up as the youngest and only daughter in a family of three boys. As a young girl, her favorite activity was riding on the back pegs of her oldest brother’s bike while being taught how to read the signatures of Graffiti artists from around their neighborhood.
By 1994, Emerald had a “tag” and was learning how to use spray paint. In 1999, she began pursuing Graffiti and Art as a passion. She attended a pre-college program at Pratt Institute in New York City (just before 9/11) during the summer of 2001, receiving only a month of formal training in painting, drawing and art history. She has continued painting ever since. Many of Emerald’s works can be found interacting in public spaces throughout the United States and Europe, or rolling along freight lines from the United States to Mexico and Canada.
