NOWNESS: Rostarr – B-Boy Abstraction
Brooklyn-based artist Romon Kimin Yang, aka Rostarr, sat down with director Matt Black to speak about the sometimes eclectic method in which he works. Known for shape-based graphics and colorful abstract paintings, Rostarr blends his South Korean heritage with New York City street culture to create most of his work. To keep with the abstract nature of his paintings, he even resorts to break dancing on canvas to create custom pieces, which has become a staple of his art. Hip-hop, family tradition and B-boying are all ingredients of his portfolio which are given an overview in this video by NOWNESS.
