Warning this is going to be long winded.
I've been at war. Honestly, I know how JMB felt now. I'm feeling angry about the racism in the art world. All my but on of my favorite living artists aren't black. He'll only a few aren't male. It's not that I am trying to not enjoy painters from all backgrounds ...it's that it's so fucking hard to find multicultural artists. That are in the main stream. You have to look for "special" art types to see different artists. It's not in magazines or even the newspapers. It's like they hide us in back rooms. It makes me really made for my self and for the public. Shepard Fairy is very talented but I see so many artist on the walls of DC who should be standing information of him or at least beside him. Share all the art you find people! Please! No one with power is going to write about your cousin or friends ...you have to. Ghandi said " be the change you wish to see in the world."
If I post something you like...share it...no one else I feel is going to. I need your help. I am that great artist at a gallery show they put up in the small back room gallery because I'm young and not a white guy. I feel beat up some days by this but I push on because honestly fuck those people! I do this because I love it and I sell a lot of work normally. I just wish I could get the chance to make the world get a chance to see me paint. I work really hard but I feel like if I let people put me in a box of just being another "black artist" then I be left out of a huge amount of people seeing my work. Like the back corner of a newspaper that only a few people will read because it's next to ads for strip clubs.
Help me out here.
Later and love you,
Thanks for hearing me out.
