Fragile Black Man Alpha
Painting by Shabazz Larkin - Acrylic Paint On Unstretched Canvas | 45x60 | 2018
Fragile Black Man Alpha - This piece is from the "Fragile Black Man" series, where the artist drew this image over 140 times in the tumultuous year of 2020. This artwork captures the essence of peace amidst the chaos of a pandemic and the resounding echoes of George Floyd's tragic passing. The artist's deliberate choice to depict every third man in a prison uniform serves as a powerful commentary on the criminal justice system and the challenges faced by black men in a world that's often fragile toward their existence. It's a thought-provoking addition to any space, inviting reflection on resilience, racial equity, and the pursuit of a better world.
