Artist Statement

This artwork was inspired by Martin Luther King’s quote about his dream that one day” little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with white boys and white girls and walk together as brother and sister”. I decided to use really happy and bright colors to show you can be happy with people even if you don’t look the same. I made everyone different because in reality no one is the same and everyone’s different. When people look at my art I want them to see unity, peace and love. For this piece I chose to use colored pencil and marker. My favorite part of my piece was the lesson behind it that everybody should know and everybody should live by. My motto for this piece is that you don’t have to be the same to be friends.
