Find what you love and let it kill you.
-Charles Bukowski

Artist Statement:

My work has always been a way for me to express unresolved thoughts that would have no other way to manifest without my art. My art focuses on Afrocentrism as a means to share the beauty of my culture with the world. I have been asked time and time again by people why I draw black people.

This statement shows that being black in art is still seen as strange or not normal, just as no one asks a white artist why they are drawing a white person. My art exists with the goal that one day this question will no longer have to be asked, that seeing Black faces, bodies, and culture will allow us to coexist with the postcolonial world.
