This is an older painting I did three years ago. My style and skill-level is different, but I still enjoyed how creatively bold I was at the time. I use to always avoid talking about my past and upbringing, but some things just stay with you–I mean this is a positive way, of course.
The Bronx Project 84 is a collaboration project I am starting with childhood friend and writer Nakeeda Holmes. Please check out and like her page and subscribe to her Youtube channel. This girl is seriously inspiring and talented. We need honesty, authenticity, and truth! Art that is not afraid to reveal the truth of society and be political. Art is not always pretty, but beauty is found within the truths that we all share as humans. Being sensitive to the needs of others and understanding them is a part of understanding the universality of the human spirit! I am grateful to be working with her and hopefully some more artist in the future. The aim is to showcase and help support various diverse artforms representing the Bronx. My goal is to develop an art show featuring both visual artists and writers by 2019 in New York. So excited about this project and I am looking forward to seeing where this goes.
