Last week an amazing artist collaboration came out. Visual artist Alexa Meade and movement artists Jon Boogz en Lil Buck created a masterpiece, this is dance on a whole new level. I watched it several times and it touched me deeply.
Transfixed by racial, political, and socioeconomic tensions saturating the news, movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, enveloped by the art of Alexa Meade, switch off the TV and release their emotion into a stirring dance that is both a lament and a spirited call to action.
Movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck, who use dance to move people and improve the world, find alchemy with Meade’s perspective-changing art. The result is a powerful, mesmerizing reflection, a moving 2D art representation, of the state of today’s society.
Below are drawings I made last night inspired by the video, hoping to create art on that level too one day.
Much love to you all, and to those celebrating Eid al-Adha wishing you a very happy Eid!!
