visual ARTIST highlight
" They are the people who keep inventing and reinventing themselves, finding just more than what others claim to "be". An artist is someone who continues to challenge and question who they were even just moments before. To Fall in love with one is like diving into a wild, dark, passionate, and beautiful world. "

Step into the world of Nelli J
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND - Creative Artist, Nelli J
"Free Me" is a Self Portrait of Nelli J that represented her as an Sugar Skull ( similiar to the Dias de los Muertos theme celebrated in most spanish countries) It displays Nelli as an adolescent , unable to speak or express the pain and deformity she experienced. Having a firey yellow hair that showcased her hot temper, inner knowing, and the inability to fight. In a sense the portrait was a way to communicate just what she always could not articulate and became a way of releasing that which held her back. Stitches across the mouth and throat -where she had been shamed for speaking. This is an art peice open for you to interpret.
