St. Paul Slim

Title: Unify Humanī

Location: 625 Hennepin Avenue

On display until: September 8, 2017

A Wiseman once said the best way to predict the future is to create it. I agree with this because to create is to bring into existance, manifest thought or cause something to happen or materialize as a result of action. As an abstract/graffiti and performing artist I have the power not only to create my own future but to influence others in the creation of their own as well. Everything we touch with one or more of our 5 physical senses is food. If, what we eat is to power us physical then what we see powers us mentally.  Gill Scott Heron said the revolution won't be televised. The reason is because real change is mental before physical. My exhibit as it relates to the future is about the change of energy from negative to positive and the awareness of the people. All human families of the planet earth uniting and standing together against the prehistoric and unwarranted mentality of hatred. Real freedom is love. And only love can Unify the Humanī.



I am not a black artist, I am an artist. Jean-Michel Basquiat

Meyer Warren is the man. St. Paul Slim is the emcee. #TheW8OnEmptySpace is the painter. In the tradition of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Warren is his own artistic invention. As St. Paul Slim, Warren has created a legacy of lyrical prowess through his booming voice. He speaks for the streets, he speaks for the people, and he speaks very loudly. His journey began as a member of the duo, Guardians of Balance, and through the years has found him rhyming with the likes of Muja Messiah, Prof, Atmosphere, MC Lyte, Cee Lo, A Tribe Called Quest, KRS-1 and Slick Rick. While his commitment to music hasn’t waivered, his visual artistic talents have evolved into #TheW8OnEmptySpace. In the past two years Warren has had three solo art shows, he has been featured as an artist for the Made Here series #Represent, and he is one of only ten artists featured on the 2016 Summer Arts Discovery Series at the Landmark Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
