I have 6 siblings but grew up in a separate home. My cousins and I to this day are real tight and we’re blood. After completing a recent piece as part of the “If we feed eachother, we can live forever” series, the piece titled, ‘Unbuntu | Gang Related’. I kept thinking about how I felt like my cousins were like blood brothers and sisters and this year, 2020 I can feel gang related to so many of you as we use our voice and our energy to amplify our beautiful black selves as well as fight for social and civil justice. Growing up with this bond with my cousins and also during the 80’ and 90’s when gang banging was glorified; I don’t see that the same. I see bloods, crips, black, light skin, whatever, all uplifting and holding eachother down. I’ve observed the structure of gangs and understand, most people desire a sense of belonging, purpose and reward. We can do that without hurting eachother. Just look around. ➕When you create artwork, the artist often steps back multiple times to get a better perspective of the work and observe the work broader. That’s what I have enjoyed, being able to step back and be proud of our black community. This year more than ever. We blood cuzzins.
