POET : Allum Alluvus
Hey, My name is Allum Alluvus. I like to refer to myself as an abstract expressionist. Honestly I flow where ever I feel a need to flow/ release.
This shows up through poetry, singing, producing music, painting, photography, and creating visuals. I honestly fell in love with how freeing it is to express beyond words, also in the same light how many conversations can be started with what you see? or what you feel?
Especially in my paintings, my art and sharing my art has been a safe space to simply BE for me without any limitations/ caps.
My art is inspired by the freedom to express, the realization on how to transmute life; the transformation of what’s hidden and is brought out to the physical. So many stories being told whether it’s through my voice, song, pen, or paintbrush. Honestly it’s such a powerful tool, meditative.
I think everyone can benefit from once we understand art isn’t bound to a space/image/ a thing per say. It’s evoked, expressed. The amount of healing that can be achieved. It’s like therapy that's accessible to us all.
POEM : AM I?
Curious Sure he is, is there a cure for this?
Lights and shadows faded yellow
Hue darkens my bones favored in my aloneness
Each night I would slip and wonder where my home is
What are you?
As if a color defines who l am?
I am the kind that doesn't mix
Spotted, Dotted, Patched, Splattered, Unmatched, Unhitched
Why does it even matter?
l am art Undefined.
Abstracted to those whose mind that can't seem to find
Expressed tonessingular nodes of sunshine and cold
Jaded in my faded skin as my pigmented face
Loose more melanin, did this make me less black or brown
Because my hands are now white codes ridden
Hidden flows strokes wishing for an end
Underneath My skin glows a soul
Who knows we shine like the rainbow
l am a reminder that I can't be confined nor will I be defined.
