This is a print of my painting, "General Jonny". It is printed on archival matte paper. The artwork is 10 inches x 8 inches with an extra 1/2 inch white border around this size. This listing is for the print only, it is unframed. General Jonny Description: My work focuses on the manifestation of identity, particularly black identity. This identity always forms to show the consistently powerful presence of the black figure. I'm rewriting the narrative that western visual media has historically established by elevating black figures to the role of the protagonist. There is a definite negative social identity that is imposed upon black youth when the media negates the idea of the "black hero". These pieces break free from this imposed identity and explore new ranges. It's important to see the black protagonist, the black leader, the black achiever. General Jonny is the esteemed black general of our fantasies. His time period is indistinguishable, which points to the history of black excellence that has been systematically erased.
