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.
