My painting represents the idea that everyone can play a valuable part in achieving real change in a nation. It starts by teaching future generations about previous injustices and how to avoid repeating mistakes. We must instill respect for our fellow man, love of our neighbor and empathy.

I created this piece in 2014 after the tragic death of Mike Brown. This piece is called Mafanikio Or Breakthrough in Swahili. This peace represents the fight against police brutally against black people. I truly believe through hard work and coming together we will have a breakthrough and we will come out stronger and better than ever!

Even in the mist of dark times we have continued to be a strong community... No matter how much push comes to shove we still stand strong... It's an eye-opener to those who are still not aware that these discrimination still do exist for my culture in my community. This is proof to stop ignoring it

My work expresses pain and calm. It hurts me when some people put themselves above others and I feel calm when I know that there are people who can overcome pain and move on.

The whole world now at last sees, feels and shares our pain and has our back in the regards to the lack of accountability and blatant, heartless systemic slaughtering people of color! It has to be finally and at long last be... OVER!

Synthia Artwork

I paint and create from experiences, dreams and visions, crafting the colors to speak. I am an active advocate of the importance of Arts in Education and before opening my own studio in Raleigh, I taught art to children and adults of all ages. I believe creating art is fulfilling and builds self esteem in young and old. Art allows expression of emotions and tells stories of one’s environment. Every child should see artists that look like them and feel free to express themselves through the arts.

Ever since I was a child, I have been illustrating people and for the most part that’s what I still do now. I love to paint and digitally illustrate with the intention of uplifting people of color; specifically, Black People. I want Black people to feel confident in themselves physically, emotionally, mentally, financially, etc…You have to know that you are able and you are beautiful.

My art is primarily centered on portraiture. I enjoy working in contrasting styles, using contemporary design elements and find inspiration in the work of the impressionists. The message I’d like to share with my art is derived from one word – empathy. Unity and peace begin with the work of understanding our history, differences, attitudes, pains, and aspirations. Empathy is the bridge that can bring cultures, goals, and philosophies into meaningful context.

My artwork highlights human nature and our impact on the world. The Sugarcane collection in particular is a prototype of this and speaks to a time in which African slaves were used to farm the sugar plantations which became an integral building block of our society. I find that our use—and often abuse—of nature connects to our global abuse of Black Americans and the African diaspora to this day.
