Several visual artist's took to canvas to create a piece that interpreted "Climate, Justice & Jobs"
I was nervous about competing, plotting my idea on the ride down of what to paint. Only to get a bit more nervous upon hearing one of the judges was legendary Haitian artist Jude Papaloko. Someone who I've admire low-key for years. As well as Artist, activist and editor and chief of "Two-Spirit Times", Houston Cypress.
Miami Rising/ People's Climate Movement" concert on Sept 8th, The National Day of Action at Bayfront Park.
I've only participate in a "art battle" only
And when the moment of Truth occurred...
You gotta believe I was completely stun to hear that I was the winner amongst all the amazing works.
The conversation with Papaloko & Cypress as to way they gravitated to my piece left me humbled and inspired.
I titled it "If Justice Could Only See..."
In it I had Lady Justice blindfold slip and she could see all the people of color and how the world was being ruined. I feel like our governments by choice are blind to our struggles and need to truly see.
I'm working of an Illustration of it to really flesh it out.
This was an honor and I had a truly Treal time!
