"BROKE" was created in 2015 by the artist during a residency in Chicago, in collaboration with Raymond Lyle. The piece is a dynamic blend of mixed media, including paper print, spray paint, and stencils on canvas. The artwork features an American $100 bill with the words "Broke as Fuck", serving as a powerful reminder of the significance of financial stability and the impact of money on our daily lives. The title "BROKE" is a reference to the term used to describe the urgent need for cash in the absence of proper funds. This thought-provoking piece serves as a constant reminder that "Money is Power".
