He served 15 months in Iraq, where he was blown up 4 times by IEDs (improvised explosive device). And he also painted a mural in what used to be Saddam Hussein’s bunker.  So what is Jouvon Michael Kingsby up to now?

According to a fantastic new article in Santanero, Kingsby has set up shop over at the Spurgeon Building, in the Santa Ana Artists Village.  He’s a part of the art collective ‘X is the Weapon’ as well as showing many of his pieces in local galleries and shows. Additionally, Kingsby is designing the cover for KRS-ONE and Maylay Sage’s upcoming collaboration.

    Wow, check you out Mr. Wannabee Art Lover, “Jerk off” political puppet! So now you are a Jouvan Lover? are you? Well maybe you will find him in my gallery kicking it for an interview for u. If you are lucky. Art Hating Jerk! u are.

    • Silly Mateo. I love the arts. I am however not a huge fan of the local artists who promote lame politicians like Benavides and Amezcua. But they are few in number.

    This story is a great testament to the human spirit. The way in which people can pivot and discover unknown talents, in this case, from soldier to artist!

    I heard of another example, where an accomplished defense attorney and failed political candidate executed a “power exchange” of sorts with the wife of a downtown dentist. It is rumored he was “DRILLING” her on his office couch!

    Humans are amazing…….then again so are animals.
