This is the second interview in a series spotlighting the art of Nirvana artist, Rhett. The first interview took a closer look at his sculpture work. Today we are delving deeper into his marker sketches. It is well-known that his marker art has been influenced by his mother who believes that stick figures is the highest art form. Rhett has taken marker art to a new medium – the white board. Unconventional, yet relatable, this young artist is breaking boundaries in the art world.
It has been almost a year since we have spoken with the North Texas artist. He has matured (to the age of 4) and so has his art. Let’s see what Rhett is working on now.
Hi Rhett, thank you so much for allowing us to speak to you today. Can you catch us up on what has happened since our last interview?
What are you working on now?
What is that?
A picture. A Good person. A bad person.
Intense. Let’s take a closer look at the details. Can you show me about this figure on the left?
Good person. That is hat, NOT hair. That is a mustache. That is a shirt, NOT a dress.
What is this interesting circle in the figure’s mid-section?
The belly button. Can’t you tell?
Now let’s look at the figure on the right. Can you tell me a little more about it?
Very bad person.
Oh. What are all these wavy lines?
I don’t know.
What is this flow-y area on the right?
I don’t know.
Why is this person bad?
It is a girl.
Why is the other person good?
It is a boy.
Your mommy is a girl.
So. Girls are bad.
Even your mommy who carried you for 9 months in the womb and has devoted her life to your well being?
Yes. Girls are bad.
This interview is over.
