Contemporary Art: MFA 2013

In 2013, 3 months into an MFA program at RMIT University School of Art, I was confronted with a situation that made me question my awareness within the program. Because of that incident that occurred while undertaking the Masters program in Australia as well as events that were taking place in my home country at the time, I started to really contemplate upon creating works about what it means to be a black male.
