TEDxConstitutionDrive 2012 - Eric Drooker - "Native New York Artist"

Our 2012 theme was "Identity" This year we explored Identity in a way that went beyond the standard gender/race/age lines. We see Identity as the non-genetic DNA of us, one that is co-created by our environments and ourselves, and which drives in a powerful way our choices, our relationships and our lives. Speakers as diverse as Eric Drooker, New Yorker artist, to Beau Lewis, producer of the American Hipster series, to John Murray, scientist at the SRI International labs, came to share their perspectives on Identity. Eric Drooker, painter, graphic novelist, frequent cover artist for The New Yorker, and animation designer for Howl, a film based on the epic Allen Ginsberg poem Eric Drooker is a painter and graphic novelist, born and raised on Manhattan Island. He's the award-winning author of Flood! and Blood Song. For many years Drooker was a street artist, well known for his provocative posters, which were plastered on city lampposts and walls. His paintings now appear on covers of The New Yorker, and hang in numerous collections. He collaborated with the Beat poet, Allen Ginsberg on the book, Illuminated Poems, and later designed the animation for the movie, Howl. Website ? http://www.Drooker.com/
