I See Myself In You

Documenting other Black artists, especially Black men, is enriching for many reasons..

It’s an inevitable self portrait.

It’s representation and inspiration.

As a child, a Black male artist wasn’t a tangible reality for me.

Of course I saw musicians, rappers, and many people’s Black artistic reference point: Basquiat..

But I never really saw in person or met Black visual artists.. definitely not a Black male visual artist.

Always remember the influence you have on those around you and the youth just by being an example of what’s possible.
