The creative made the revelation in a post on his social media page.
“Hello family and friends
Coming up for air – from this pile of work. I have exciting news. I am super excited. my new video “Black Is” off the #coldandfrostrated album has been released.”
The artiste gave the backstory to the new release as a prompting from an international exhibition courting the #BlackLivesMatter initiative.
“I was approached to exhibit “Black Is” in an International exhibition in the spirit of #Blacklivesmatter so I had to put a video together.
Basically, where poetry meets visual expressions as an art form (think, poetography). This video is a mosaic probing of blackness.
The Video: ‘Black is’ combines flashes of history, culture, beauty, victory, strength in ‘Blackness’. The more we search for the depths of its truth the more we find lots of answers.”
