SSD Art Collective
The ssd art collective is a small community of artists from Brooklyn, Detroit, Chicago and Montreal. Formed by childhood friends, the the ssd art collective spans various medias including music, writing and visual art. The members of the ssd art collective include published writers and poets, recording artists, professionally trained and self taught painters, photographers, dancers and tattoo artists.
A majority of the visual art designed and produced by the ssd art collective comes from two members who now reside in Michigan and Chicago. This work combines member one's skill of paint and production with member two's photographic work.
The ssd art collective is a collaboration of memories. It is the revival and reversal of the places and moments that once were. Our concentration are the places that art is furthest from; the day to day and the mundane of a forgotten world. You'll find us in the alleyways and back entrances. ssd art collective is not abstract. It is concrete in its deliverances and exploitation of life's little gesture. In all things the ssd art collective is an attempt to revitalize the moments and pieces of human experience that are now lost. The reanimation of the faded is realized in these images of common moments, urban decay and bits of happiness.
The members of the ssd art collective and all of it’s sister projects remain unnamed. We believe in the power of producing our art, not in the concern of assigning names. Who does what is less important than what is done.
