Langstn live always never go stressing the negativity (langstn). As an artist, my work exists to spread a message of power, perseverance, and pride. I take the viewer along with me on a journey through my heritage while navigating today’s modern social landscape.

Cultural touchstones from West Africa embrace our nation and the global fight for activism without fear. A significant component of that message is in support of love and beauty. Representing the African American community is essential for my works. Social commentary and the tumultuous times shaping our lives shine through my work, which I embrace. I also include my own experience and artist influ

I had the fantastic opportunity to create an illustration for Inqueery Median (inqueerymedia) !! I've wanted to do an editorial illustration for years, so I was honored when they reached out! This project pushed me creatively, but it all worked out in the end. I can't thank you enough for this opportunity! I had a great time creating it.

I'd love to know what you all think about this piece 😁

“The holidays are sometimes stressful, so we just decided to have a fun themed exhibit that is based on two colors and good times,” Mergeculture said about their not-so-Christmas Christmas show.

This project was driven by the local community. The artists pulled off the design in 48 hours. Made it to the office of Transportation, budgeting partners, the mayor's office on Friday morning.
Saturday we had 200 volunteers from the city, we ran out of supplies, we ran out of paint.

There was no time to budget a strategy for each wave of volunteers because the design had to be tweaked due to the complexity and our supply inventory, and unknown skill level of so many volunteers working at once. While all that is possible, logistically it would all have to be worked out on paper and we’d have to design a volunteer system, there wasn’t any time for that. We worked with the systems in place and made this work - this will open the door for future conversations for local black artists in our community with the city, with the county, and other organizations who organize public art.

The first project came together beautifully, and we can’t wait to work on the next one.
