Another masterpiece by @artofnatiq

“Growth in Defiance of…”

81 x 30" mixed media on brown paper.

I started doing brown paper art a bit over 2 years ago as a statement of black beauty and resistance against a past and present that tries to convince us that we are ugly.

I don’t mind that there are others who are now using this concept in their own way. The more voices speaking on it, the better. Racism, colorism, and all of the other high key problematic issues that persist to this day need to be voiced and and they need to be voiced often and loudly, so that those covering their ears in the back can hear.

I don’t own the rights to the background music. The song is “Penthouse Cloud” by The Internet.

I miss painting like this... - 07/21/2009

There are few things so deeply personal as art to an artist or religion to a believer.

I really do believe that.
 
This is a painting I did a long time ago, called "Beautifully Broken, Sadly Perverse". I did this at one of the lowest points of my life. Finishing this painting meant so much to me and represented so many things.

I am still having trouble with my traditional art at the moment, but I have high hopes for the future. I will get my art back... I truly believe that now.
