An elephant sporting sneakers...no better way to illustrate who I am. This design is inspired by and dedicated to the loners who choose the road less travelled. My views about the world are constructed by what I see, how it makes me feel...and how people are directly affected by institutional tools to oppress us.
Basquiat holds a large influence over me. Artists work diligently to express their feelings through our art that cannot be expressed in words. Our art has personal and social significance which can't be put into a box.
My path is hard, I can't lie. My activism lives through my art and if it means that I am at times alienated, criticized or misunderstood then I'll take that.
Like the talented Erykah Badu stated, " I think a lot fo people have lost respect for the individual, you know, the person who doesn't conform."
