In 2014, Chapman began his career as a spoken word artist. Since then, he has performed locally, regionally and nationally. His professional range includes spoken word performances, screenwriting and acting, the facilitation of poetry showcases, craft workshops and artist mentorship. 

Chapman operates as a visual artist under the name The Golden Moment. He utilizes the mediums of film and photography to convey emotion without explanation.

Recently, he accepted a position as a public artist working with the city of Raleigh on a project at Dorothea Dix Park.
