MCA DAY 2016 Artist Kevin Carmody

Up next yet another veteran MCA DAY artist, Kevin Carmody from Court Damascus, MD.

In his own words:

I am an artist from the Washington Metropolitan area who has been involved with fine art since the age of seven (i.e. I reference this age because this is as far back as I can remember drawing a pic of Roger Rabbit). Other than that I mostly do mixed medium work and design skateboards too.

MCA and the Beastie Boys mean thorough NYC hip hop to the core.  From their boom bap beats to their musical instrumentals, they always just seemed to fit for me.  However, it was not just their sound.  That was only a portion of the influence they had.  It was attitude, style, and staying true to yourself.  Hence, I have never tried to be anything else other than Kevin Carmody.  Similarly, I don’t believe they ever tried to be anything else other than the Beasties and it worked.
