Racial Peace In The Digital Age"
acrylic on stretched canvas,
12" x 32" x 2"
I was inspired by the racism in the United States. Due to the growing racial tension caused by very angry politics I became compelled to create a work of art that expressed harmony. The idea for this painting was to line up peace emojis in the same sizes, but different colors, so that the painting will express equality and diversity.

The idea for this painting was inspired by digital art. As a traditional artist I often think about paintings use in the digital age.
In the summer of 2017 I learned that Windows PC was planning on uninstalling their Microsoft Paint Program from their computers. This program is a raster graphics editor, which is a digital version of a canvas and tools.
I chose to accentuate the textures of the acrylic paint. This technique gave a meta quality to the painting. This painting went viral through reddit, instagram and facebook. To date this painting is my most popular piece.
