A Cultural crusader through visual arts, BUCK! is a multifaceted creative with work reflecting humanity’s motivating forces, while creating dialogue for its viewers. Raised in Baltimore, Rodney Herring (aka BUCK!) thrived at Hampton University majoring in art. Soon after landing in DC, he found his artistic home. BUCK! utilizes passages of text and varied typography layered with boldly silhouetted or highly contrasted figures to explore the various layers of the human experience.

BUCK! utilizes passages of text and varied typography layered with boldly silhouetted or highly contrasted forms to explore the various layers of the human experience. As an impetus for such explorations Buck delves deep into his own vices in an ongoing journey of spiritual discovery. Each piece mirrors the aesthetic of graffiti, emulating its cultural significance - as if a poster or piece of art were not finished unless “the people” were able to provide additional language to express themselves. This body of work, expressed through words and images, reflects the zeitgeist and is designed to expose the emotions of the viewer activating the nerve that connects each one of us to the core of Humanity.
