We are excited to announce our collaboration with spoken-word and self-taught visual artist Halim Flowers. Born into poverty in Washington DC, Halim discovered drug dealing as a way out of poverty and dependency of those who let him down. As a teenager, at the age of 15, he was incarcerated as an accomplice to an intended crime and received a double-life sentence as a juvenile for 22 years in prison. In prison, he discovered new ways of expression in the visual arts and spoken word. Often he uses iconography and portraiture to depict perceptions of wealth and commercial success contrasted against images of fear, poverty, and oppression. Halim has been featured in various group and solo exhibitions including at MOMA PS1 and is represented by DTR Modern Gallery and Stella Jones Gallery.
