Police are not legally obligated to serve and protect, but to enforce the law. The holocaust was the law, hiding Jews was not. The law is a basis for power - WHITE SUPREMACY, CAPITALISM, OPPRESSION, RACISM, PATRIARCHY, BANG, BANG, BANG! Being a good person does not overrule the choice to enforce oppression...there is no "good cop". Remember the chicken, mind your neck when reading the truth...duck, duck, goose.
JULY 2019 / LOS ANGELES / EXHIBITIONAs his final exhibition in Los Angeles, Moja experiments with installation techniques with film. Moja suggests that the mixture of hues and textures bend the lines of what we define. Thus, a psychological motive of societal behavior.
JANUARY 2020 / HAMBURG / COMMISSIONEDA red background to depict the energy you share and consume with this beautifully chaotic world. A blue Julian to remind you of the depth and stability he gives you. Yellow is the brightest color on the spectrum and will remind Julian of the positivity and lightness of you. The glittered brown lips symbolize the richness of your first kiss and how that experience sparked roots to what’s next to come. The resin sand green is a token of both of your ambitions in the relationship and as individuals. The orange is to recall the attraction you have for each other whenever you feel lost. The black was used as a mark of strength keeping all the “colors” intact. The sand paper kept falling while I was painting. It wasn’t until yesterday I knew it’s purpose. Use the matches and strike the sand paper whenever you + Julian need a reset or reached a checkpoint i.e. after a argument, trying a new sex position, moving to Berlin, or welcoming a new life. Thank you for allowing me to express my feelings.
don’t bother me i’m a work-in-progress
JANUARY 2019 / LOS ANGELES / EXHIBITIONComing off his first solo exhibition, It’s Okay You Threw Me Away, themed around up-cycled installations, Robinson stains himself as a multidisciplinary artist with Don’t Bother Me, I’m a Work-In-Progress (W-I-P). After being released from art school during his adolescence, Robinson has continued to un-define the idea of expression. Frustrated with the structural ideologies of art in academia and the highs and lows of self-discovery, Robinson flushes these emotions through an arrangement of canvases.

An aural digest stimulating an idle sense. this project is to rekindle the act of learning and enjoying via ear. society has become reliant on visual perception, that it has become facile to pollute and distort the minds of the masses. ironically this project began during a time of turmoil between the usa and former soviet union. i was advised of the horrors of a cold country, but i compared it to the mass media and yellow press’ global groundless immortal vilification of high in melanin males. this mindset ultimately gave me the vision to open my ears and enjoy pоссия.
