“SOME BLACK GUY”

  

“Some Black Guy”

Some black guy is actually a piece I created that inspired another piece of mine titled 

“NOTHING”

Some black guy comes as a reaction and total disrespect of the black mans body.. His body isn’t worth anything. He has no real identity. Society views him as sometimes an entertainer, sometimes a genius, sometimes even a father but at the end of the night. His name appears on your tv screen. You don’t bother to remember because you see this everyday. Some black guy killed again. They look at the mysterious circumstances that made him who he is. They wait for him to explode so they can revert back to what they have trained themselves to know. Oh yea Antonio I think his name is I’m not sure I forgot.. Doesn’t matter he’s just “some black guy”

Some black guy is  done in mixed media on 8×10 canvas. 
Thank you.

“NOTHING”

  

NOTHING OTHER THEN HOW ITS NEVER GOOD
                                NOTHING

Comes from certain feelings one has about himself as an artist as a black man and as a vessel of culture so to speak.. I am not interested in labels or movements. I consider myself nothing.. I am nothing.. Just some black guy. A nobody.. But when I leave this place I hope my art will be helpful to young men and women and I hope it symbolizes the fact that a black man who is considered nothing sometimes in society can be something actually.. Something much more.
This piece is 16×20 on canvas done in a mixed media technique I call nothing. Hope you dig it and I hope some of my thoughts and sentences that run through my head spark some discussion in your mind.
Thank you.

“Self Portrait Of A Colored Man”

  
This piece is about the colored man. Mysterious he is. What motivates him to go on despite the fact his color makes him a target in society. What rules has society put in place for the colored man to follow ?

Walk this way, talk this way, be accepted by your counterparts. My colored man accept the gold Ora that surrounds you. Listen to the stories of your ancestors colored man. Search for the truth don’t let it find you. Have a curious mind. Be vigorous in your attempt to show the world that the world isn’t just black and white it’s more then that. It’s about all the colors.

This piece is the first piece I have completed for 2016 and is a symbol of the type of pathway I’m trying to reach within myself and with the people. Done in oil stick, acrylic paint and oil pastels.

“WHATS HAPPENING BROTHER”

  

THE RECENT SENSELESS MURDERS OF BLACK MAN BY THE HAND OF THE SUPPOSED JUST AND THE FACT THAT NO REAL JUSTICE CAN BE GIVEN TO THESE MURDERED BLACK KINGS. I THINK TO MYSELF WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON IN THIS CRAZY WORLD RIGHT NOW. THE HOBO SIGNS REPRESENTS BELONGING TO A CERTAIN GROUP OF OUTCASTS AND HAVING A WAY OF TALKING AND UNDERSTANDING THAT THE NORM THE CONFORMIST THE SUPREMIST CANT TRULY GRASP AND UNDERSTAND. I PARRALELL THAT WITH THE NEGRO MAN BECAUSE THEY HAVE MANY SIMILARITIES IN THAT RESPECT. THE FIGURE REPRESENTS THE NEWEST BLACK MAN KILLED BY THE LIKES OF A COP IN 2015 IT SOUNDS CLEASHAE BUT I REALLY WISH BLACK MEN WERENT DEMONIZED AND PROFILED IN SUCH A WAY.  THIS PIECE WAS DONE WITH SPRAY PAINT AND OIL STICK ON CANVAS. HOPE YOU ENJOY.

 

“LAWS OF ABSTRACTION”

  

 I DECIDED RECENTLY WITH THE TURN OF EVENTS IN MY LIFE TO PURPOSELY INJECT POSITIVITY AND WARMNESS INTO THE ATMOSPHERE NOT ONLY FOR MY OWN BENFIT AND VIBES BUT FOR THE PEOPLE AROUND ME AS WELL. I WANTED TO MAKE SOMEYTHING BEAUTIFUL. THIS IS INSPIRED BY JAZZ AND LIFE AND WAS DONE WITH A MIXED MEDIA TECHNIQUE. I HOPE YOU ENJOY.
