Opening to the public Saturday, January 24th from 7-10pm, Inner State Gallery is proud to present “We Have A Dream” a group exhibition featuring more than 40 emerging Detroit artists, each paying homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historical “I Have A Dream” speech.
“In celebration of Dr. King’s legacy my goal was to curate a group exhibition that would shine a light on local artists and their dreams that are shaping the Detroit art scene,” curator Roula David said.
This original piece of artwork comes signed by Sleep and includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from Inner State Gallery.
'There is nothing in life like wasted talent!' This is something that I grew up around in Southwest Detroit. Gang life and drug sells were the normal. Friends and family falling to those lifestyles quickly showed me that talent or life can be easliy taken away from you. I had one shot to prove to myself and those who were watching, that you didnt have to choose this route. I started with pencils and soon went to spray cans, making what I thought was art and never followed any other artist. Three years ago I fell in love with stenciling and soon perfected my craft and cutting skills. The artwork that I create now is all stencil work with the help of paint splatters and various other methods for the backgrounds. I can transform any image into a stencil and I plan on doing so with every picture that I can get my hands on.
