   Meet The Artist  

Hello, 

My name is Deja Green. I am a 19 year old, Michigan based artist who's biggest goal is to have a good impact on many people. Throughout these past couple of years, many of the glaring issues I've noticed exist within the mindset of my peers. Mainly revolving around the way we percieve ourselves and eachother as a result of harmful narratives stemming from our society. In the past, the criticizations of my art have fueled my desire to push it even further. One of my favorite pieces I've done depicts a Black male angel in a cloudy sunset sky. Upon showing someone outside of the Black community, they questioned how an angel could be Black. Their comment showed me that I was moving in the right direction.
