“‘Wash With Like Colors’ is a collection of handpicked paintings that were inspired by materialism, capitalism and classism as they affect our social climate and mentality. This body of work is targeted to exercise your self-awareness, self-consciousness and contradictions to think beyond our own insecurities. The work features iconography based on the black experience as it transcends trends, myths, societal mental conditioning, and conscious ignorance. The art will question what society has projected onto the black culture – then challenge us toward a new reality.”  -Zeph Farmby
