An award winning artist, Roger Carter’s first real devotion to street art style was revealed during the late eighties as a teenager. It was at that time that his thirst for creation exploded after seeing street art emanate from the streets of Chicago. The enormity of the works and the care free expression of color displayed a means by which someone could gain the attention sought by every kid. This rebellious idea of searching for identity through the use of markers and spray paint fueled Carter’s imagination. So, he redesigned his sketch books and followed in the footsteps of graffiti artists. Carter’s vision is to capture the persona of the African American experience through representations of iconic images and expressions unique to the experiences of African Americans. In his exploration, he has found himself in a creative battle between street art and abstract; mixing past experiences with abstract expressions. As feelings are evoked from the emotionally charged imagery he leaves on canvas, Carter’s artistic soul reveals itself with a flurry of whirling paint and exploding spray paint cans.
