Week 16: Eagles vs. Giants
Artist: Amir Campbell
I am a firm believer that art was the first healer to us all. We used art/creativity to heal, to express, and to communicate. As someone who first hand can admit, art has saved my life. Every creation is a constant ebb and flow of creation, creating, only to be re-created by what was created. It's the process of birth and decay, through electromagnetism. In love we as a species create a synergy which is greater than the sum of the parts thus 1 + 1 = 3. To Make, Produce, or Bring into existence the artist that creates creations. I aspire to inspire, and stay committed to the promise that we are one, and we are free. As an individual I say I. However, I am unified with we in my work. I am never absent of unity, but always searching for identity, both in American and African American culture, as I identify most with my aspect of being.
Each piece helps me become aware of cultural conditioning. This awareness allows me to speak back to hate with a message of love. In essence every piece is just a reflection of what's in me. What's in me is pure love, and love is light. Light scatters the dark, and lends it color temperature to everything it touches. So, in summary every painting I create is shedding light, lending love, or scattering darkness.

Rather than allowing this to slow him down, Spector soon found an outlet for his passion through something he always had a secret talent for, art. Since this path in 2015 the rest is history. Spector has now garnered a reputation in the sports world for his unique mixed media style recreating moments filled with energy, emotion, and passion through the lens of a former athlete.
