ABOUT HUNTER

A local artist with sustainable dreams

My name is Hunter and I grew up in the DMV area which exposed me to a lot of art and diversity being so close to the nation's capital. My artistic style is a reflection of my personal experience as a marginalized member of society and also seeks to inspire radical structural change. The subjects I like to focus on range from small ink designs, to massive painted murals, to afrofuturistic digital works.


Most of my pieces depict black people in fantastical settings demanding the destruction of oppressive institutional systems and promoting the message of love for people and the environment. Through my creations I hope to create a beautiful and accepting place not just for myself but for everyone who believes that we can create a better world
