In Max Hemphill’s photography, humanity screams in subtle vibrancies that illustrate the details and rawness of his subjects. His captivating and sharp-edged photos of people and earthly endeavors encompass components of human nature that the human eye can fail to recognize in passing.

Unbounded depictions of his subjects create an element of freshness and tranquility in a current world condition where so much chaos and movement run our lives. It is as if we can feel the breath and warmth of the people we are looking at. These photographs are intimate, safe, and wildly meaningful through emotional displays of power, freedom, and authentic joy.

If you’ve recently been around Atlanta, Georgia, and visited the Hartsfield Jackson Airport, wandered around downtown, or found yourself at the Woodruff Arts Center, your gaze has probably been met by beautiful art pieces showcased on towering billboards, digital signs, and shining displays. Art can be found anywhere throughout Atlanta, but these locations in particular have recently been decorated with pieces from the 6XTOne exhibition. Held from Jan.1 through Jan. 5, 6XTOne was a city-wide art exhibition created to celebrate the inauguration of Atlanta’s 61st Mayor, Andre Dickens, and showcases the beautiful work of 61 Atlanta-based artists. Mayor Dickens is a strong advocate of the arts in Atlanta and even insisted the exhibition take place during his inauguration. This celebration is yet one of his many initiatives to preserve the art and support the many artists who reside in Atlanta.

What do you get with communal vision, creative appetite, and a love for art? A movement. A social movement that cohesively showcases Black culture, variations of current artists, and a space to empower and honor their work. 

In 2019, Joshua Dingle created The Spectacular Black Girl Art Show, a series of exhibitions that began in Atlanta annually, yet since has grown in esteem nationwide throughout cities such as Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Austin, Chicago, Nashville, and New York City.

Dabs and Myla are described as a dynamic duo of artists. Originally from Melbourne, Australia the couple moved to Los Angeles, California in 2009 to take their careers to the next level. What separates this team from other artist groups is that this duo is actually a couple in love. They describe themselves as “two crazy, work-a-holic, mad dorks in a pod,” and believe that working together has only brought them closer.

Stunning murals flourish across buildings, and dazzling canvas prints hang proudly throughout the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The artist responsible for these outstanding works of art is Theopolis Smith III, who is more typically known by the alias “Phresh Laundry.”

Not originally from Indiana, the artist was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but frequently jumped from city to city due to his dad’s business affairs. He eventually landed in Fort Wayne, through his father’s travels and instantly fell in love with the city and its people. Before long, Smith was being commissioned to curate extraordinary pieces for the city to marvel at.
