The work is called “The Awakening, and the following is the artist’s statement, according to the Phoenix Taco: The Awakening is a mix of hand-cut stencils, wall art, Apache Skateboards and an installation of art on boxes titled “The Town I Live In”. The Apache Team will return in November to work, skate and demo and officially open the show. The Awakening: A place no one wants to go , but where everyone wants to be. Seeing what no one admits and admitting whats no one sees.
