I’m a multidisciplinary xennial blk artist in visual poetics & performance. I work through digital and public landscapes to address trauma, health, pop culture and social life.
My art is rooted in the duende, in the breaking. I create to end the war between the mind and the body, reminding both that they are one and the same. My work is a fight against erasure and silence. I create in blk, meaning I create in the àshe, meaning I create so you can feel what da fuck I’m saying. I create for feeling. I create to feel. I create to figure out how to live with the chaos I am/make. I believe the body is performative, constantly perpetuating yet rewriting the histories & policies woven into it. I create to be, in the words of Kendrick Lamar — a beautiful contrast, a muthafuckin’ human-being.
