“Time goes by so fast in NY. I’ve been here for 12 yrs It feels like 12 minutes..There is always a new train coming but if you dont get on, then you missed it ..I feel like i didnt miss my train when i first got here i just got on the wrong train. Hopefully, im on the right train now.” My friend Coco sent a facebook message. “LaRon, I have a new small story for you! I did a studio visit with my friend raphael melendez. His work is amazing.” Rafael traded his corporate gig for an opportunity to focus on build his own brand as a visual artist. I filmed his story at his new studio he shares in Williamsburg.
