"Black Frames" Art Exhibit 

June 18, 2022

Toronto, ON

BLK FRAMES by BLK MEN STYLES is about the perspective of Black Men through Art. The event was a semi-formal matinée exhibition of art visual art that included live painting, live vocalist, live poetry performances, and an open wine bar.

 

Event Objective:

By utilizing the medium of Art, our goal is to present Black Men’s experiences through a unique lens. By painting, capturing and writing our own stories, we are taking full control of the definition of Black Men and how we are perceived.

I had the opportunity to showcase some of my Art and connect with my community, and it was a memorable experience.

"Richard Pierpoint Park" Exhibition

June 11, 2022

St.Catharines, ON

The city of St. Catharines contacted Rodman Art Institute of Niagara to create a public art exhibition to accompany the renaming of Centennial Gardens to Richard Pierpoint Park.  I, alongside curator Raven Spiratos and two other artists, Brendan Fernandes and Tabitha Lewis, had the opportunity to breathe life back into the existing panels in the park. The end result are bright, vibrant panels that are visible from the walking path at Richard Pierpoint Park. Fernandes’ work attention to textiles is striking, evoking rhythm through juxtaposition, all the while calling us to consider his message of “POWER IS NO POWER.” Lewis invites us into a world of movement with fast lines, the human body and its innate potential. As for me, I explore the body through the motif of hands, calling our attention to their utility and creativity.

 

The exhibition will be up for the year; however, stay tuned for more information about a reception we are planning with the city in the fall. For now, take a walk through the park to view the exhibition.

Blessings & Love,

"TOOL OF TOOLS" Solo Art Exhibit

April 30, 2022

Toronto, ON

This showcase draws inspiration from different interactions and movements in our everyday lives. It reflects the most frequently symbolized part of not only the human body but of human interaction. Our actions, gestures, movements, and connections remind us that the symbolism of our hands is rich and varied. It is a complex yet youthful reminder of the inner child we possess and lives on in every one of us.

It was an energy-raising evening filled with empowering artwork that allowed space for authentic conversations around community, connectivity and culture. 

Check out the recap of the evening.

Blessings & Love,
