Art Speak Memphis presents Phatmak - March 21

A passionate, honest, and talented man acquiring knowledge, Darius "Phatmak" Clayton uses the ink pen as a stress reliever. Clayton was raised in the inner city of Memphis, Tennessee and was introduced to the art of poetry at the age of 15.

His "dive-in head first, sink or swim" mentality provided him with many sobering experiences in his lifetime which reflected in his poetry a sense of relatable truth and experience driven wisdom, creating a first person experience for listeners and readers. He gives captivating live performances mixing theatric delivery, soul music ballads through conversational tones and in your face soul drenching messages.

We welcome you with open arms to show Art Speak the "art" of language!

The ART of Spoken Word

Spoken word is best described as the art of verbal language. Words are manipulated together with a beat and soul that includes plays on phrases and tones.

Art Speak Memphis is ready....for story telling time.....
