Artist's Statement 


Blacksneakers is a 21 year old illustrator and painter, based in North Carolina, USA. Her primary focus is the human body. She's able to express concepts of emotion, mentality, and physicality while combining it with vibrant color schemes to create complex, fantastical narratives focused on Afrofuturism and the black experience. As a young, black woman, she feels it's best to contribute her voice to a community already unique and beautiful.
