For Joey Semz

The other day I decided to paint a piece for Semz. It’s quite a reminiscing feeling when painting a piece for a friend who has passed away. While painting, I end up thinking of odd experiences or trips taken with the person. I think a lot about the past and how I ended up where I’m at today. It’s a real sad feeling knowing that the past is done and cannot be returned to. When i go back east it doesn’t feel like home anymore. What i knew has since been knocked down, regulated, or swallowed up.

As Joe became less interested in graffiti, he worked more on his music. The energy and honesty in his music clearly comes across in an inspiring way…

Rest In Peace

    Really true sincere music, heart, feeling, and passion.
    Well, I guess you DO reminisce about the past, I thought I was the only one who got all into that kind of stuff. And I know how you feel about home not feeling like home anymore!…
    Take care man and thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Joe,
    I’m Joey Semz’ dad. I would like to thank you for posting your piece.
    Nancy(his mom) and I still live on Staten Island. You’re so right about the city changing.
    Semz has 2 nephews now, Luke(2 years and 10 months) and Drew(8 months). Luke knows about his uncle Joey and really likes his paintings. Memories.
