Being a black female artist is stupid. I’m always looked at as a joke but if I was a male or white I’d be a God right now. Ridiculous.
As a Black Male coming out in the art world myself I completely agree with you. It’s hard as hell for a black person to be taken serious even by our own people, let alone being a black women. I have so much respect for the black queens of the world doing their things. Demand your respect, do your thing, keep your head up, and keep showing the world your talent. Cause the ones with the most criticisms are the ones sitting on their ass, haven’t left a 10 mile radius from where they were brought into this world complaining about why they aren’t getting anywhere, reposting the same picture over and over again of someone who has made it. Art is producing what you see, feel, or hear. And it ain’t for everyone. Digital imaging is the medium of our generation, and the ones that take the time to do things the right way deserve respect. Some of the greatest pieces have been seeded from the works of others. Sorry for the rant, but it needed to be put out there.
