Artists For Humanity (AFH) will present works by emerging artist Rashad Nelson, an AFH alumni with endorsements from leading streetwear titans 

including Bodega, BAU/Business As Usual, and Jiberish. Nelson’s natural-

born aesthetic will be exhibited in a visually profound display of color and

its character. 

Nelson’s artistic beginnings were much different from his current style of dripping ethereal washes, abstract shapes, and angles in polychromatic juxtaposition. His early inspirations root from “graffiti bombing.” Extracting

from this retro street art form’s tradition of layering and balance, Nelson

began creating stimulating abstract compositions during his years with AFH. 

Which is why this night will be so special. Nelson’s growth has been a labor

of love that he attributes to his artistic nurturing at AFH. Proceeds from

artwork purchased at the exhibition will support the AFH EpiCenter

expansion campaign. 


OPENING RECEPTION: Monday, September 21 from 5pm to 8pm 

Artists For Humanity’s gallery will also be open on Tuesday, September 22 from 10am to 5pm for visitors to view and purchase works.
