Didier William is a painter and printmaker whose mixed-media image-making process draws from memory, oratory, and historical archives to reimagine narratives of the Black diaspora. Here, the artist’s signature field of eyes is printed in metallic ink on alternating lines of text stating IMMIGRANT LOVE, QUEER LOVE, and BLACK LOVE.
20% of proceeds from the sale of IMMIGRANT LOVE, QUEER LOVE, and BLACK LOVE will fund The Caribbean Equality Project’s (CEP) COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund For Black & Brown Queer and Trans People
