For many artists, art is beyond self-expression and aesthetics. It allows them to translate their deepest thoughts into visuals that capture their passions, vulnerabilities and issues they care about. Art is, in many ways, also political.
Known for out-of-the-box streetwear lookbooks and editorial collabs, art community To Seventh Heaven is putting the spotlight on artists’ naked truths with “The Inauguration of To Seventh Heaven,” a virtual exhibit viewable on their Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Officially launched on Aug. 16, the exhibit will run until Oct. 31 and will feature creative works from over 20 local artists.
To Seventh Heaven’s IG account already featured three works from Felezedad, whose monochromatic illustrations depict her honest interpretations of body dysmorphia and mental health.
“Art will always be political and it can be used as a weapon to fight ignorance and injustices. Art does not boil down to aesthetics and artists should strive to make their art accessible to the masses,” reads the description on Felezedad’s posts.
With many artists lined up until October, we can expect the exhibit to showcase a diverse range of art and raw depictions of everything young artists care about.
