As an artist, I primarily depict images of African-American and minority paired with hip-hop references. Contrasting motifs like man-made vs nature and the past vs the present is a major part of my work. I strive to create images that have familiar looking faces set to a background that feels culturally authentic. I create works that attempt to include those who tend to be overlooked in many contemporary visual conversations.
I believe the role of an artist and a curator is to create and to connect with people. Those roles have not changed much over time, but how we connect with people has. We have more outlets for expression than ever before. The challenge used to be being heard or seen, now the challenge is saying something worth hearing and making something worth seeing.
