Rose Golden – Benji Manuel

Why did you pick this picture?

I chose this piece because it represents my wave very well & I connect very heavy with the inspiration behind it.

Where did the idea come from?

I really enjoy looking at Greek Statues and their culture of “Greek Gods”, because in my head, “we are all gods”, so I love to apply a Greek statuesque to the portraits that I draw.

What does your art mean to you?

My art is everything and all I am, so this specific style that I’m using right now says benji all over it. My soul is art. Art is my soul. I’m just learning more n more as I try to keep going.

What can you tell us about yourself?

“Since I was young, been groovin’ to my own drum. Ain’t that many teachers, show me my potential, felt like a failure, momma said “you know better”.

Future in my hands, God, she had a plan. Stronger than I know, soon I’d understand, the power I possess.” – Rose Golden

I was brought here 20 years ago, and in a city that’s cursed to not make it out, I’m gonna be the one to break it“Yellow City”, Tx. Soon, I’ll change the world.

What more can you tell us about your artwork?

I don’t draw because it’s fun. I draw to keep breathing straight. I rarely do color cause where I’m coming from, isn’t colorful at all. I’m trying to get out of that by applying little colors more n more to my drawings to show that “I’m trying to keep going”.

I started drawing because I was having an anxiety attack.
