This exhibit is a collaboration with Comic Book Illustrator Walter Myrick. The name of the exhibit is "Clarke vs Myrick : Art vs Art". It's an exhibit project that joined our two worlds together for one exhibit!
Renita Clarke I’ve been passionate about photography since 1993, when I tinkered with an old Kodak box camera that I came upon. After a period of shooting, exploring and self-learning, I turned what was once a hobby, into career.
Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to shoot portraits and live events.
Some of my jobs have led to covering such prestigious events such as the Sundance Film Festival, the Tribeca Film Festival and concerts at the Rams Head Group venues. I’ve been exposed to work with such high profile clients such as; Pepsi, YouTube and BET (Black Entertainment Television).
When I photograph a subject, my goal is to always capture the moment that evokes some sort of feeling or emotion. I want the person or the audience to come away with a complete experience. This makes the end product worthwhile.
With the launch and new partnership with, "Studio Tre' 154 Production", I will be able to expand my love for photography to videography as an added medium. I’m excited about the future and looking forward to the next image creation experience.
Walter Myrick is an artist and art teacher residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Growing up in the small town of Paulsboro, New Jersey, Walter consumed a steady diet of classic cartoons and spent countless hours drawing his favorite illustrated characters. He soon began reading comic books and his love of art lead him to become an art major in college.
Holding a degree in Art Education from Temple University's Tyler School of Art, Walter is currently a middle school art teacher in the Philadelphia public school system. He has presented at national Art Education conferences in New York and San Diego and infuses his art education curriculum with comic books and other elements of popular culture.
Walter continues to work on his own original art while creating a studio space in his classroom that will hopefully inspire the next generation of artists and illustrators.
