ABOUT THIS ART:
“I was 15 when Hurricane Katrina changed my life forever. We left home with intentions to return thinking it was just a storm, instead I was forced out of my existing reality and introduced to experiences that made me level up. My only outlet was my art, this was all I had to keep my mind off the troubles of the storm, and the displacement of my family and friends.

“This body of work is personal, we all know the trauma that occurred during the storms and the flood, but we made the best of it. Creating “concrete beaches” to pretend that this horrifying event had just enough positivity in it to embrace something normal.

“In New Orleans we celebrate in the midst of disasters and other life changing experiences, this is why I have chosen such a bright color palette... to embrace the smiles and show that the sky is still beautiful.”

–Jay McKay
