IN MEMORY OF TIMOTHY CAUGHMAN

Color does not attack color. 
Hate and prejudice are un-natural,
because you are not BORN WITH IT;
You are BORN INTO IT.
If you hate,
you are carrying someone else’s hand-me-down
negative state of mind that you gave birth to
in your new moment of time.
Hating with someone else’s eyes
while you walk around blind.
Talking revolution is the solution.
There can be no solution in revolution,
Until evolution within begins towards your fellow man.
I warn those who hate and think negatively,
if you can’t find a victim to pass it onto,
it will work on you and the innocent children too.
For they know not what is right.
Stop these senseless lies
that destroy our children’s playful, peaceful , loving nights.
Causing them to hate and harm and disrespect
those they come in contact with.
Judging others only by the color of their skin and religion,
skipping over the beauty within.
Stop the revolution and seek the peace within.
You are not up against a man,
You’re up against a state of mind…….YOURS!
You are overlooking the problem, prejudice is like hunger,
It is only looking for an empty mind and stomach to fill.
This is my only reason why this message is flowing through.
For the children to know there lives a truthful, peaceful flow
deep within their beautiful universal souls
to help them to positively live and grow.
 
No one is above or below, that’s why the creator
gave us all the same color shadow.

Political activist and Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel once said “Most people think that shadows follow, precede or surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.”  It further remind us of the impact divisive rhetoric and prejudice has on the quality of life and psyche of Black America. 
Prolific artist and childhood friend of Caughman, Sir Shadow pens poem to ease the barriers of hate in the hearts and minds of people everywhere .

Sir Shadow Drawing the Walls of the Whitehouse

Original Article

Thursday afternoon, we received a call out of the blue from one-line artist Sir Shadow. He’s currently working on an ambitious project at the curiously-named Whitehouse Hotel, where he resides and maintains the ground level gallery space. It had been a year since we last spent time with him, so it was a no-brainer to scope out the new undertaking.

If you’ve ever been inside the Whitehouse at 338 Bowery, then you know of its bland, transient nature. There are roughly fifty rooms on each floor, arranged like office cubicles with dank cots and low ceilings. No privacy. To spruce things up a bit, the owner of the hostel apparently decided to enlist his artist-in-residence to mark up some music scenes. Step one was painting rectangular black canvases in almost every room and on the hallway walls. Then Sir Shadow works his magic. Simple as that. There are reportedly 300 drawing spaces across three floors.

Carrying bottles of water and a handful of silver paint markers, we ascended three flights of stairs to the fourth floor. Sir Shadow was gracious enough to let us record while drawing three separate pieces. Each illustration was accompanied by philosophic oratory, poetry, and/or soulful humming. It’s a trip. One line; the pen is never lifted. At the end of the demonstration, he jokingly said that the limited edition wall is available for purchase at $1 million.

Speaking of merchandising, Sir Shadow is also looking to brand sheets, pillow cases, shower curtains, and table cloths. In the meantime, you can stop by his gallery at 338 Bowery to see (and purchase) more art. Totally worth it. Email him, Sirshadow2001@yahoo.com.
