My name is Jay
For You - Canvas, silkscreen, and thread
I made this piece for a political collage assignment. The piece is for Trayvon, Oscar, Sean, Troy, my brothers by blood or not, friends, my future children, my list is endless…which is the scary thing. I’m BfA candidate at Moore College of Art and Design. As an artist I feel it is imperative to talk about identity. I use the media as well as my environment to make my own commentary on what is going on. I want my work to be conversational pieces, With certain pieces such as For You I want to make people uncomfortable and have to face the real issues at hand.
