Brandon Boyd Joins The 1xRUN Flint Water Crisis Print Series With A Portion Of Proceeds To Benefit The Flint Child Health & Development Fund + Michigan ACLU

Earlier this year, April 25th marked an anniversary that many Flint, Michigan residents would rather forget. Three years ago the city of Flint switched the city's water supply from the Great Lakes Water Authority to the highly corrosive Flint River. Over the ensuing three years, Flint residents would stage protests and aim to expose politicians responsible for the disastrous switch over. Along with the help of protests from Flint residents and the work of veteran news reporters like the Michigan ACLU's Curt Guyette the Flint Water crisis was brought into the national spotlight. Three years have passed and not much has changed, find out more about the Flint Water Crisis on the Michigan ACLU and on Detroit Metro Times.

"This piece was created a little under a year ago. A friend of mine named Lauren, who I've painted before, was kind enough to pose so I could capture her likeness so to speak. I was purposefully trying to be a bit more loose with my wrist. I can get overly specific with my line work. My own sort of criticism of my work is that I can get a little too precious about it, so occasionally I will use a damaged brush, or leave pencil marks and things like that to make it not as precious so that way something else can come through. So this piece is kind of an example of that. It is part of a couple years of work that have been more figurative watercolor pieces. I have really been trying to capture people to the best of my ability, with a really challenging medium in watercolor. Watercolor is confounding to me. Right when you think you have control of it, you don't. Which is great, because it keeps me in a relative state of humility.

There's a bit of frustration, and a touch of anger in it, in that any of us have to fight for something like access to clean water. Anywhere in the world, let alone in the world's wealthiest country, where we have technologies that are about to put us on Mars and we can't seem to find out how to get safe drinking water to all our communities. As it turns out what has happened in Flint is happening all over the country, some with even worse levels. I remember hearing about it and being angry because I wasn't surprised. I started to get kind of freaked out and angry. There was this desensitization that was taking place. We need to be shocked by these things. If little old me in my weird corner of the world can help to continue to bring awareness to these things then I feel like it's my responsibility. Even if I get 10 people to pay attention to it. I hope and pray for a day when access to clean water would be something that we don't have to fight for. " - Brandon Boyd

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Brandon Boyd’s work as a singer, songwriter, both as a solo artist and with his platinum-selling rock band, is well documented and universally acclaimed. But now his other life’s work -- that of a painter -- has been garnering increasing attention and devoted audiences of its own.

In his painting and drawings, Boyd reveals a personal, freeform, ambiguous kind of visual style that focuses on magic, serendipity, curiosity and mystery. Describing his art-making process as a kind of “blissful, familiar trance,” Boyd’s works carry both the evidence of the beautiful chaos and the power of revealing the narratives inside of it. His images are constructed by chance through colorful ink spills and the contents of his own travel journals. As songs might come to him in a dream, so he discovers the vibrant, witty, eccentrically classical constellations of shape and circumstance that hide in plain view or emerge from his own quieted mind through another kind of sight.
