Aronde Carr is a 9th grader at the Perkiomen Valley High School. He grew up in Norristown and moved to Trappe in 4th grade. He returned to Norristown for 7th and 8th grade and then came back to Trappe this past summer. Aronde describes his art as modern and his target audience as teenagers who are into urban culture.
When asked about the featured drawing, Aronde says, “‘Street Canvas’ was inspired by some graffiti artists that I know in Norristown. Graffiti gets a bad rap sometimes, but I feel it can be positive and negative. It’s like music; the positive or negative message the art contains is what matters. This is important when it comes to sending a message to kids. You have to keep it positive.”
