Magic Johnson--Loving Miami Art



The artwork of Troy Simmons (my hubby) is truly revolutionary, capturing the harshness of humanity mixed with the softness of nature. It’s a complex theme echoed in his sculptures and wall mounts.


His innovative approach in using paints, wood and cement caught the attention of a brand new television network Aspire.  Retired NBA player and business mogul Earvin “Magic” Johnson has teamed up with Comcast to launch his own 24-hour cable television network targeted at African-Americans.  It’s the first of an expected ten minority-targeted networks to be developed over the next decade. 

Last week, a team of producers and photographers traveled to Miami to interview my husband for the network. Expect to see his great artwork on Aspire in the near future!
  The network is scheduled to launch on June 30th. View more of Troy’s artwork check out on his Facebook page or his website at www.ModernForest.com.
