I Am Troy Davis

Paint marker on canvas.

Nearly two weeks have passed since the state of Georgia executed Troy Davis, demonstrating yet another “justice system” failure. This project is a tribute to Troy Davis, Rest In Power, as well as an expression of solidarity and unity in the continuing struggle against social injusticeS.

In Troy Davis’ words:

“There are so many more Troy Davis’. This fight to end the death penalty is not won or lost through me but through our strength to move forward and save every innocent person in captivity around the globe. We need to dismantle this Unjust system city by city, state by state and country by country.”

I based the image on the left shoe on one of my past drawings, UNTITLED.

Reflection and Response.
