“I first heard of Sam “Shorty Fatz” Rodriguez as one of the designers for Cukui Clothing. Sam has branched out as an individual designer and caught my eye as a fine artist painter. In 2012, I connected with him again when we painted for PowWowHawaii sponsored by Montana Colors. After that great event, I slated him for my newest show, The Composite Knowledge, I’m curating for the 1AM Gallery. The show also headlines with Jaybo Monk and Poesia Transcend, who I’ll be interviewing in my next blog entries.” – Mike “BAM” Tyau on www.mtn-world.com.
