Ginnsiyo Apara (b. 1989, Columbus, Ohio) studied at Columbus College of Art & Design and is a member artist of MINT Collective. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He painted a mural panel during 934 Fest 2016, which is now on display at Racket Club Recording music studio. His recent body of work explores the human condition amidst waste and urban decay within the confines of the class system.

Class as a means to relate
My life as your aesthetic
Channeling a caramel McCandless
Bodega boy
Rockaway to Coney
Splash for the loosie
Please excuse me
Please don't shoot me
My freedom is worth 2.75
Wanna get me with the bracelets
Only Cuban links tho
Young turnstile bandit
White dude wanna shoot me for 8
Imagine a world with no waste
Human connectivity is truth through the trash we create
And you're gonna carry that weight
The weight that load
Past and promise
Black bags of unrealized hopes and aspirations for the future
Next to the Bustelo and Goya juice box
The ear that hears
The touch that touches
The smell smeller
See what there is out there
It's all just garbage
