I would love to bring confrontational, worldly issues of social, political, and emotional backgrounds of the world in visually captivating ways and present them to society in order to promote a better sustainable life on Earth for all living beings.
There are many issues on this planet hidden from the public eye for various reasons. Even if they are shown publicly, if found out certain individuals would have to go into hiding to protect themselves. I believe in freedom of speech. I believe if there’s an issue that needs to be addressed then the people should at least be aware of this issue. It is seldom the case that we see or hear truthful, unbiased news in this age yet when the individual speaks up they are vulnerable to backlash.
I want to empower the people by creating a way for individuals to speak up on matters that could change the course of history. The truth is subjective to the viewer and so is art. Visual interpretation is one of the most known and easiest ways to convey a meaning or a subject. I hope to establish galleries across the globe that act as a haven for the outspoken in order to address matters that are either unheard of or scrutinized.
I plan to start working at art galleries and perfecting my craft after college. I will put my work and my ideals out to anyone who would listen in galleries and online until I get a strong fan base.
