The largest gallery dedicated to showcasing the art of homeless youth and helping young people discover their love for art.
Remembering heroes that have inspired us artistically
Sep. 01, 2021 — Oct. 31, 2021
p:ear youth are currently working on a series of portraits of inspirational artists, titled “Hero Stamps.” These stencil portraits are often the collaborative work of many youth artists, and include portrayals of artists like Frida Kahlo, Snoop Dogg, Yayoi Kusama, and Basquiat.
The name of the series was inspired by the Public Enemy album titled “Most of my Heroes Still Don’t Appear on No Stamp.”
