Hermann Brood

I met a Dutch Drug Counselor in Vientiane, Laos a few years ago who compared my art (a drawing I gave her) to Hermann Brood.  I had never heard of him until then, but after some research I was pleasantly surprised.  I have never been a real punk artist per se, although there are many aspects of the culture I do embrace, even some of the music.  I am more of a hippy to be honest at heart.  However, there was a Boston graffiti artist I felt connected to in the 90's named Greg Meyers (Paz) who is like Brood as a person and artist in so many ways.  A mutual friend compared my work to his in 1995.  However, we were two sides of the same coin.
