Artist

Statement

Inherently afrocentric, my work began from a need to see strong, beautiful revolutionary images of black art. One without heavy images of slavery and the things that lead us into the abyss. I hate those to be honest. Always have. It made me feel heavy and demoralized. I figured the best way to depict our struggles is through our triumphs. My work revolves around love, manifesting, and culture building. As African Americans, it’s about realizing the duties and blessings of being in the unique position to build/create our own culture from scratch. And being able to smell those roses in real time. It’s about evolution. The undeniable global impact we’ve made in such a short time. It’s about appreciation and acknowledgment.

 

My work explores color and how it feels coupled with the intention of creating a world for my theories and perceptions. I gravitate towards SUrrealism and minimalism with touches of whatever else.
