As I entered this week I found myself thinking about my community and the people I come across on a daily basis. Living in the same neighborhood I grew up in, I’ve noticed a pattern in lack of emotion. Emotion is something I continue to show and express in my art simply due to the lack of it. In my art sometimes you may see a man crying or wearing a certain color, patterns. In my art I just want to continue to show my community that their authentic self is beautiful. Showing your true self without reservation is beautiful. I hope to influence the ones around me that who you are is beautiful alone.
