it's just another life, no?

Right now I just feel I have to write and so I do. I'm writing this for myself and to myself, I don't mean to write for someone else now, but maybe some of you out there are feeling the same sensations I am feeling, so that's why I'm writing publicly, because where are not alone....

Lately I'm thinking about my life and art... what's the relationship between them? What I rationally think is that art is what I want to do in my life... but is that the reality? is it what I really want to do?
Because if so, why am I so stuck?... feeling depress because I cannot produce something I really like, something I really want to.
I know the way to be an artist is long, maybe so long that will take a life and more, but what I don't understand is why I'm not able to be more determined, to carry on working on my art. The thing I hate more is that I can be so determined and strong while I work (I hate my job), but not when I should do something I really love...
Some personal trainer will say is just in my mind... thanks a lot: I perfectly know that!bha... enough for today, at least I feel better...

Some of u experienced the same? How did u manage that?

it's not a game not a hobby, it's Street Art

Yesterday, just up and still a bit sleepy I've watched a video… I'm still shocked. A young guy dies doing graffiti; he's not the first and he won't be the last: THIS is shocking.

Why? Why take a risk like that "just to paint on a wall"?

But even without to be so extreme, why spend a lot of money in cans and trips, why take the risk of being catch by the police?

Obviously it's not just for fun…it's not a hobby, not a game at all.
Many questions bouncing inside my head, then one of them became THE question: Why am I doing Street Art? Why am I spending hours and hours cutting stencils and training with cans, pastels, colours?

Honestly I've never thought about this before, but right now this is my future, my life… I deserve to find an answer.

I'm not doing this for money nor to become famous.

So, what's moving me? What is pushing me? I just feel something is burning inside me, it's like a fire I cannot extinguish.

I don't know, but I MUST find an answer…. I MUST

Renton in 2011

Renton in 2011

Has been long time since I've posted my last entry, so I thought it was time to write something because sometimes I really need to stop and write...think. It's like to freeze my life for few minutes and think about what I did since now and what's next... yes: WHAT'S NEXT!?!? Another year ahead and I should think about the future, isn't?!?

bha... the truth is in my future I see my girlfriend and my Art, that's all. The reality is that I really care only about them, but I MUST think about a job, since right now I'm unemployed and I've no money to pay my rent and the taxes... but if I decide to find a boring full time job I can say goodbye to my art... otherwise to find a good part-time job (even if I'm quite skilled as developer) is quite hard right now....  so I'm quite... and the fact I ate more is that in this period I'm so inspired... it will be a shame if I've to stop or slow down my production....

don't know guys, I only know life is quite hard. And don't tell me there is people in worst situations or stuff like that, because I PERFECTLY KNOW THAT... but I think each person should try to get the BEST from his life and that means not always you could be happy and completely thankful to have such a great life.

Anyway: no time now to be sad, it doesn't fix problems. I'll go back to my art and after this holidays (2 more days) I will sort this out.

I wish you a great 2011!

A little Biography

Thu Nov 25, 2010, 1:23 PM
Who is Renton?

Renton (Mark) borns in Milan in the 80s, but he considers his birth 12 years later, when he clashes against a reality that changes his life: the HipHop culture. After a period as graffiti artist, Renton starts to dance breakdance, a passion he will carry on for years until something stronger catches his attention: music and poetry. Since that moment Renton spends (almost) all his time writing poetries and making rap with his band, the GiorniMigliori (Better Days), with which he records a disc and sings in many live events. Everything seems to be perfect, but the Destiny has other plans for him: the band split and after a while he decides to follow "his monkey" and moves to London, where he's currently living. Life in London led him to rediscover the old passion for graffiti and art and since this moment Renton becomes a Street Artist, as he likes to define himself. At moment Renton writes poetries and songs, paints and makes electronic music… though he has a "normal" part-time job, he has decided to dedicate his life to Art and to the emotions hidden in it.
