This 3ftx4ft painting by SFM, featured at the Bronx Museum on January 15th, brings attention and awareness to the systemic discrimination and oppression of people of color that exists in the United States of America.
The goal of this pierce is to inform our communities, motivate individuals to stand with our brothers and sisters, and fight for justice.
To get his message across, SFM uses references The Last Supper, The Boondocks, and The Boondock Saints. It is an interactive piece, which you will later see, as onlookers are encouraged to share a message from within as they stand with them.
