Vegas- In a world that has vivid tensions between skin complexions and recognizing the art of African American Culture, Leroy Campbell has shown the world that he can capture the essence of black beauty.
Campbell is an artist that has pushed the boundaries of creativity with paintings that tells the story of an exquisite style of the African American community. “During a time of political chaos and propaganda, art is the loud voice of many frustrated and marginalized people of color in communities from coast to coast from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn to Oakland, California.”
“Rather than channeling energy into the negative aspects of society, the purpose of this exhibit is to remind the Black community of our strong, historic roots of working together as a collective ecosystem and uplifting each other on all levels from family to an enterprise.”
Campbell had some challenges that he had to face and overcame it. He was born with missing fingers and toes due to a complication with a type of medicine that was unethically tested on women in the 1950’s, but he did not let that stop him from bridging imagery and messages together. Each of his pieces has an inviting and empowering message that a lot of the black culture can relate to.
