“The subjects in my work are Black. They’re as dark as everything I’ve been taught to hate about my physical self. My work is about black radical traditions, hip-hop, and the history of the Diaspora. My ancestors were stolen, slaughtered, and enslaved; I work to transcend and release ancestral trauma by fantasizing and reveling over the grandiose empires in which these ancestors once reigned. I communicate all aspects of my selfhood through my photography in an effort to inspire my audiences to similarly elevate and explore their identities and histories.” - Bobby Rogers (@bobbyrogers_ ) w/ @neekasodopee; @sarahwhiteblack; @billcottman
I wanted to say a big THANK YOU 🙏✨
to everyone who helped my RAW Artist showcase come alive @ SAVOR Minneapolis!! It was a successful and inspiring night for me, with over 1100 attendees! I indeed sold artwork, gained fans, saw other amazing artists, handed out business cards, and acquired valuable insights from kind strangers about what my artwork does for them.
I may have put endless hours of tedious work and my heart into manifesting this vibrant vision, but I feel incredibly connected to my authentic self more now than ever.
Ultimately, when I look back at how it all really came together-
I see the familiar faces of amazing friends/family with big hearts. Your selfless generosity has always been present somewhere!
Thank you for supporting and encouraging me in a vast amount of ways. Whether you bought a ticket and came out to see me, made a donation, assisted in helping me set up my booth/packaging inventory, or supported me afar via Facebook presence- you all made a difference! .. You know who you are. 😉
Lastly, as I gain strength and new healing everyday - I think of my Dad and how I sense his spirit shining fiercely down on me. We are connected and we are strong. I am looking forward to diving into more ART!! 🎨✨
INTERRUPTING YOUR REGULAR SCHEDULED CONTENT FOR THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE: WE’RE HALWAY THERE!Its hard to believe that its day 50 already. This project has changed a lot since day 1 so I’m really excited to see what day 100 looks like. I know most of you didn’t follow this account for art originally - thanks for sticking with me for the last 50 days. See you in 50 more!
This week I took advantage of the warm spell and rode my bike as much as possible. This beauty is my @allcitycycles Space Horse. All-City is a Minneapolis bike company that is world renown for making some of the best steel frame road bikes. - Pepe 🚲 #allcitycycles#steelisreal#bicyclelife
