Keep It Real but Make It Funky!!! The Museum Of UnCut Funk welcomes Stephane Metayer (Stef-On Muh-Tay-Yur) to our Aesthetic Grooves blog.
I was born in Jamaica, Queens and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland. As a kid I always dreamed of making cartoons for a living. However, I always felt that there weren’t enough cartoons out there that were diverse. Which is when I decided to make my very own cartoon. It wasn’t until I listened to Nas’ “Illmatic” that I was truly inspired to create “Tephlon Funk”. I hope to someday make this into an animated series and be able to share this story.
I believe that when someone is blessed with the ability to express themselves through art, that it is our job as artists to share this gift.
