“I Can’t Breathe” 2020 glass beads on canvas.
As a young black man, I decided to use my art to express how I’m feeling during this difficult time. I’ve spent the past few weeks sewing and reflecting on the social injustice that African American people face in this country each day. As a black artist from New Orleans, I believe it is important to use my voice, creativity, and platform to speak out. As the months go by, it seems that we’ve lost the scene of what is really important- Black lives. By creating this piece, I hope to inspire other artists to use their talent as a voice. Peace and love.
