Specifically started on twitter as a hashtag #BlackLivesMatter by Alicia Garza after the Trevyon Martin case
This movement wants to stop police brutality as well as mistreatment of transgendered, women,black queer.
They also want to end racial profiling,mass incarceration of African Americans and militarization of U.S Police Department
If you want to learn more information about the movement you can sign up to
Family Tree
I wanted to make this piece intimate and the best way to do so was to relate it to family.
However I didn't want the family portrait to cover up the articles of the Black lives Matter movement

The portrait is put in the front to get people engaged and not be intimidated by the many articles.

I have black light bulbs in the families eyes because they represent their ideas that are overlooked for the simple fact they're a different color.

I wanted to visualize this idea again that yes we are the different but we all are connected, we all have the same origin.

The idea of painting the tree was to visualize something that is very similar to humans which is nature.

Nature, Specifically leaves are different from each other however they come from trees. They all share the same root/family.
When and How did the black lives matter movement start?
July 2013 after the acquittal of George Zimmerman
Started after a hastag on twitter by Alicia Garza

What are the planning to achieve?
End Police Misconduct
End Racial Profiling
Gain Equal rights for Black transgender, black queer,women,stop mass incarceration of Black Men and stop the militarization of the police force

Who all are the same?
Humans of all races, gender preference share the same root we all are CONNECTED.We all are family and we should start acting like it. We just need to start being more OPEN.
Currently don't have ideas about the next project maybe more figures or another painting of a location in my life.
