ABOUT THIS ART

This piece of original artwork comes ready to hang.

Throughout history contributions of minority groups have often been exploited for a myriad of motives. As a result, these groups often lack accurate representation of their culture and its origins. In today’s culture art can act as a vehicle to transform fiction into reality and place the power back in the hands of the ancestors allowing them to reclaim their history and voice.

Detroit, the most densely African-American populated major city in the United States, has often seen its narrative subjugated just like the minority group that resides within its borders. But Detroit lends a unique voice to not only the African-American experience, but American culture as a whole. The fact, that Detroit is a true black city, is where Detroit GRIND finds its unique strengths.

FEATURED ARTISTS INCLUDE:
Olayami Dabls - NNII - Rashaun Rucker - Sydney James - Tiff Massey - Tylonn Sawyer



ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Brushstrokes that seem to be aimless lines to anyone watching Detroit native, Sydney G. James, paint are the beginnings of what will become rich, emotional portraits. Deep hues, and complex layering created with the use of acrylics, oils, pastels, graphite, and other mediums, have become signatures of her work portraying familiar, friendly and familial faces. Enchanting. Hypnotizing. Disarming. Meaningful. These are the words Sydney “creates” by. Redrawing characters from coloring books as a 3-year old artist, family road trips, the mourning of her late father as a teenaged girl, witnessing her mother’s grief, mortifying break-ups with boyfriends, arguments and triumphs with her sisters, are all memories that Sydney chooses to let cloak her. Out of those memories, and new life experiences, her artwork is conceived and born.
