Here’s a peek at the very beginnings of a new series. This collection of portraits will feature people killed through senseless acts of violence. Tyler Clementi is the first subject. He’ll be joined by young black men killed in the name of ‘defense,’ women slain because of their birth gender, and other young gays. All were killed through violent means.
This is my response to our current climate. These paintings are to bring awareness to #blacklivesmatter #gaylivesmatter #translivesmatter #allivesmatter campaigns.
As a teacher, I’ve had hundreds of children. Now as an uncle, I have a special set of children. Let’s lead them to better and freer days.
More to follow as the series progresses.
