I woudn’t quite put my art in the category of solely african american art eventhough I’m mainly focusing on black visual culture these days… but more so I make identity art. My environment here in philly has a lot to do with what I am making as well as my personal narrative. To me art with history, culture, pain, struggle is far more interesting than just pretty colors/landscape. Art made by people who are being oppressed shows richness. I’m fascinated by art that shows the same struggles I am going through/ struggles I have yet to face.
