"Inherently afrocentric, my work began from a need to see strong, beautiful revolutionary images of black art. I figured the best way to depict our struggles is through our triumphs. My work revolves around love, manifesting, and culture building. As an African American, it’s about realizing the duties and blessings of being in the unique position to build/create our own culture from scratch, and being able to smell those roses in real time. It’s about evolution. The undeniable global impact we’ve made in such a short time. It’s about appreciation and acknowledgment.
My work explores color and how it feels coupled with the intention of creating a world for my theories and perceptions. I gravitate towards surrealism and minimalism with touches of whatever else."
