#shakinshitup​​​ #teamsharonseattle​​​ #teamsharonnc​​​ #teamsharonworldwide​​​ SHAKIN' SHIT UP Our Stories. Our Messages. Hosted by Sharon Nyree Williams & Michael B. Maine Season 2 Episode 3 Features Mujale Chisebuka & Charles "The Original Spur" Conner Thursday, May 13, 2021, 6pm (PDT) / 9pm (EDT) Shakin’ Shit Up is about sharing stories/creativity and exploring the messages within them. This event is the fire breathing conversation you want after you hear dope shit. ABOUT MUJALE CHISEBUKA I moved to Washington when I was 5. My artistic journey started at the age of three when I stumbled upon my father's drawing.  I asked if I could try it, and from that day on I never looked back. I’ve always had a curiosity for life and a love for people. Coupled with my love for the arts, this led me to draw everyone and everything I saw. Through this process, I fell in love with and fully embraced my Zambian culture. Since moving to Washington, my passion for the arts, curiosity for life, and love for people have helped me to fully embrace American culture as well.  Growing up in a Zambian household and being surrounded by American culture, I have developed a love and understanding for both cultures and infused them into my art. Having a strong love for my heritage while also connecting to the American culture, (which is filled with many cultures)  has given me a rich experience that feeds my mind, body, and soul-enhancing creativity. As an African American artist living in a city that is growing in size and diversity, I have come to understand how I want to tell my story. I believe that educating people about the beauty and differences in my culture while connecting people through the similarities is the key to building on a system of cultural awareness and diversity.

Born in Mississippi, he first learned to draw Ninja Turtles from his siblings and that was the catalyst that caused him to be hooked ever since. Joining the military at the age of 17 to help provide funds in a small town that offered little in the way of employment, he would eventually be called into active duty forcing him to drop out of college. After a tour in Iraq, he attempted to get back to what he had known all his life but, discovered quickly that it was easier said than done. PTSD formed a mental block between his creativity and himself which hindered him for over a decade from producing even the simplest of art forms. Fast forward 13 years and after many attempts, he would produce his first painting in over a decade. It was a hard fought journey but he has yet to look back on the past that would keep his beloved art away from the public eye. He now uses his creativity and imagination to create one of a kind visual and abstract pieces filled with vibrant colors and a semi realistic interpretation of his surroundings. He basically does what feels right in his heart and if it doesn't resonate, then it won't see the light of day. Creativity, Positivity, and Individuality.
