Graffiti Paintings In a 1995 interview with author, activist and freelance journalist, Lesley-Ann Brown (@blackgirlonmars), Rosenfeld described himself as a narrative artist. “I like to tell stories,” he said, “I always have told stories,” adding that he “likes to shock,” clarifying, “Not shock really. I like to use a topic that is interesting, a topic that attracts attention.” His Graffiti series is no exception. Done in bold watercolors and black crayon on paper, they are benign, yet powerful, colorful renditions of African-American street artists. He was a great admirer of these bold figures, male and female, as is easily seen in Fan Man, Self Portrait of the Artist as a Young G-man, Toia Two and Two-can Toia.
