"It's more beautiful in person and gives off a 3D or textured look. I was pleasantly surprised."
"First of all, excellent customer service and communication, thank you! The mounted and stretched canvas was delivered with perfect packaging, and exactly as described for dimensions. The quality is great, and I couldn’t be happier. I ordered a second of this same lady playing the violin wall art but in a smaller size as it’ll fit better in my space. I will give the larger one to my sister who’s a musician. Thank you again, and I’ll be back for more!"
"I am so in love with my new wall art!!!"
Reflections by JLD
W.E.B. Du Bois, a prominent African American scholar, civil rights activist, and sociologist, used visual arts as a powerful tool to convey the history and experiences of formerly enslaved people in the United States. In his groundbreaking work, "The Souls of Black Folk," published in 1903, Du Bois included a collection of evocative photographs and illustrations alongside his insightful essays. These images captured the resilience and struggles of African Americans in the post-Civil War era, providing a visual narrative that complemented his written words. By incorporating these visuals, Du Bois aimed to challenge prevailing stereotypes and prejudices, humanizing the black experience and shedding light on the harsh realities of racial discrimination.
In addition to "The Souls of Black Folk," Du Bois was instrumental in curating the "Exhibit of American Negroes" at the 1900 Paris Exposition Universelle, where he showcased a diverse array of photographs, documents, and artifacts to convey the achievements and struggles of African Americans. Through this exhibition, he highlighted the progress made by black individuals since emancipation, dispelling misconceptions and fostering a deeper understanding of the black experience. Du Bois's innovative use of visual arts played a crucial role in shaping the narrative of formerly enslaved people, contributing to the broader civil rights movement and challenging the prevailing racial prejudices of his time.
We use this as our motivation to creative art that culturally reflects the things we love, the things that make us happy, the things that are important to us and the things motivate us. We hope our art inspires you to decorate your home and tell your story through art.
