by Artists QAADIRA BEY & NEGS
You are invited to attend our Opening Reception.
Qaadira Bey and Negs are hitting us with some fresh new art! Soulful art sensation Qaadira moved here from the Bronx, NY, and Negs, a talented graffiti artist, cartoonist & illustrator moved here from Brooklyn, NY.
Qaadira is a single mother of 3 awesome kids, with 2 on the spectrum. She started making art as part of her healing process and has evolved into a professional artist ready to share her journey with us. Influenced by her Dominican background, Qaadira has discovered that her “purpose is to inspire people to do what is impossible.”
Negs’ art offers a crisp, bright perspective. As he follows his dream, through his use of bright, shocking colors, he aims to inspire and inform on the importance of preserving our cultures. Negs shares that “My background Culture is the Caribbean. Most of my cultural influences come from being around my Caribbean people. The sounds, the smells of different foods, literature, Art & Dance!”
