A brilliant, innovative artist, JT Faraji has arrived in the town, to exhibit his powerful, photographic and painterly work in his own unique style!
2 galleriesOne of the most amazing, dynamic, thought provoking, and vibrant artwork exhibitions, the Justice4Tyranny Exhibition Opening of "This Little Light Of Mine" is a visual & literal - yet metaphoric exhibit of powerful messages; shot in several back drops and venues - from Nairobi, Kenya to Nairobi, East Palo Alto, California. The opening was to a packed house, and featured the photographs, a slide show, artist talk, food, and a good ambiance. The messages and concepts expressed are layered, and powerful; reminiscent in some instances to me, of the rare, Romare Beardan collagic style of combining the photographic with the painterly - and yet the concepts expressed vibrantly and deliberately, turn the Willie Lynch Syndrome on its head, stomp it flat, while providing the healing energy of resistance addressed in ways designed to make the observer think - and become a part of the resistance. All photographs in the exhibition are done in the photographic painterly style that this reporter believes will be JT Faraji's signature; and they send the message that Afrikan people have always been a complex, powerful people, still are, and always will be; and that our lives matter is a given, not in dispute, and not disputable. The exhibition itself, housed at the Alan Blueford Center for Justice for one week, is provided a perfect backdrop, in a place where all who enter know that white supremacy will not be tolerated, will be fought, resisted and defeated, mentally, spiritually, physically, economically until it is crushed.
