About the Work
The Artwork was created with the help of another visual artist friend (Yannick Lowery) through a workshop I learned the art-making process and procedure to bring you this work of art tittled "Inner". Inner is a collage that illustrates societal pressure and how it effects our inner experience as humans.
Sam Rodriguez, Founder, and Executive Director of Walls for Justice is also a muralist and a multi-disciplinary teaching artist with the belief that art creates social change. Based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Sam has been teaching art for more than 12 years through the Mural Arts program, having led the Artrepreneur Program for six of those 12 years. Sam merges art and entrepreneurship to teach skills needed to create social impact in today's creative economy. In his artistic practice, Sam organizes collaborative mural projects that bring together artists, and community members.
In June 2020, Sam organized businesses, artists, and community members to unite and paint murals on the plywood protecting store windows during the social justice protests that arose from the killing of George Floyd. By painting murals that quoted inspirational people of color and reflected their shared values, Sam discovered a way to transcend the polarity between the businesses and protesters and to bring them together through collaboration and an artistic act of solidarity. This experience inspired him to start Walls for Justice, the nonprofit through which he continues to create monumental and historical public artworks that heal and support our communities.
