RONNIE STAM & JOEY GEORGE
The mainstage at Front Row saw a dynamic act as Oribe educators Ronnie Stam and Joey George emerged onstage to the high-impact backdrop of a muralist at work creating swift strokes of textured lines. It is most often that art inspires hair, however, in this instance, the texture and unique movement of hair aided in the creation of art. To personify the message and obscurity behind graffiti, and the artistic nature of the Wynwood district, Ronnie and Joey wanted to create two looks that reflected the anonymity of street art. “Graffiti has always been a way to get a message out there—whether it’s political or just a form of self-expression,” said Joey. The resulting performance was an homage to graffiti and textured lines, featuring artful styling techniques that transcended a static background.
