Imagine, a black man on a two-way street: one way is where shame, fear and hopelessness meet – the other way opportunity, a path to relief. Our individual sense of self-worth determines how we see ourselves in our own minds: King or Fool; Diamond or Spade.


2018, Acrylic paint, 24”W x 36”H x 3/4” D

It is an original one of a kind piece with no duplicates. 

Please bare in mind that the image on here does not do the vivid colors of the painting justice, it really is more brilliant in person.
