Friends, it’s Friday. For me that means reflecting on all of the people who inspire me, visiting their work online (while dreaming I was with them in person), and sharing the brilliance they bring to the world. Today I have a handful of POC artists who are defying and defining the art world on their own terms. Some have been in the industry for over 10 years, and others are beginning to bloom beautifully. I know their work will inspire your weekend! ♡ In Solidarity, Christian
