With his second solo exhibition in less than one year, Zeph Farmby follows up his socially conscious “Pursuing False Idols” exhibition with an even more thought provoking show, “Colored Me Bad”. From Muhammad Ali protesting the Vietnam War to African child soldiers, Zeph creates a broad spectrum of works providing insight into what he describes as “The Black Experience”.
This compilation of work features iconography based on the black experience as it transcends trends, myths, societal mental conditioning, and conscious ignorance.
There is a desire to awaken the parts of our brain that have not been influenced by filters built to brainwash us so that we may trigger a new way of thinking that drives omniscience. The art will question what society has projected on black culture – then challenge us toward a new reality.
The first 50 patrons to attend the opening reception on Friday will receive a free gift designed by the artist.
