“Uncle Ricky” by Kerosene Bill

Tell us about yourself and what you do.
I am from New York City. I work with autistic children during the day, and create art, music sets and do video edits on my leisure.

When and why did you become an artist in your field?
It’s basically in my genes. I learned to respect art through my mom, aunt, and cousin.

What is your biggest obstacle as an artist? What is your biggest success?
Obstacle: Getting exposure so that viewers may see there are many other forms of art than what was told.
Success: I used to run an online podcast radio show on Apple Itunes.

What inspires your work?
Things that are distinguished and stands out. It’s totally “left field,” but makes sense.

What advice would you give an aspiring artist?
To create what YOU feel is beautiful and sends a message. There are NO RULES in art, no matter what anyone tells you. Don’t let anyone dictate to you what ART is. Stay in touch with Kerosene!

About the author

I’ve never been a huge fan of the figure of speech “jack of all trades,” but that is the best way I can explain the direction my life has moved in. My journey has exposed me to graphic design, illustration, UX design, and even a little bit of front-end development. More so, as a jack of many trades, I am a master at one: painting. I consider my gift in painting to be more than a hobby, but a calling and the single thing that lead to the creation this community.

As the Founder of YBA, my goal is to simply be a resource and to fill in the gaps where needed. I am here to solve problems that many of us artists face each and every day. Whether that requires me to create a social media community, write an informative article, or simply have a DM conversation with another creative, my true passion is to serve this community that I am innately apart of.

Outside of creating, I find myself spending entirely too much time watching ASMR Youtube and obsessing over anything MCU and The Flash :)
