This piece depicts a young man smoking a flower. The yellow Lilly symbolizes rebirth, happiness, friendship and positivity. These are all descriptions I want for people to see when looking at Black men instead of the typical negative stereotypes that gets forced upon them The flower also shows how men can also be delicate and fragile, while addressing toxic masculinity. The piece is oil paint on wood panel, mixed media [includes jewelry, molding paste]
