The Black Lives Movement - Summer of 2020

Black Lives Matter Protest Mission District live watercolor

Painted at Mission Police Station, San Francisco, during early June BLM protests.


The summer of 2020 began with massive protests throughout the United States and across the world. Recent high-profile killings of Black Americans at the hands of police, including George Floyd, reignited a movement that not only brought to light the problems within domestic police forces, but also the systematic racism.

I have been navigating these protests to depict the humanities within these protests through paintings of the individuals. I document each scene with a travel watercolor kit and travel journal. As events unfold, I will continue to paint throughout Bay Area protests.
