2nd Friday ARTWALK November 10th 6-8pm
Erica Danielle is from Durham, North Carolina. She graduated from North Carolina Central University in 2013 with a Bachelors in Art Studies. This is Erica’s debut art show after a six year hiatus. She decided to reemerge in art by painting portraits. “I like to paint people. My subjects are usually myself or other black people. I was raised alongside mostly white children and was confused about my identity at a young age: I always asked for white dolls to play with and wondered why my hair didn’t move like my friends hair. It took growing up in the black body I have and observing other black people to comprehend that I did not need to reject my identity. I now feel that it is my responsibility to take pride in being black and contribute black images in society. I want to normalize the image of black people. We are dynamic people. We don’t fit into a category or genre. We are popular culture.”
