Painter

Keyani Watkins, also known as @YoungBlvckGxfted (Young Black & Gifted). is a Miami artist and creates very unique portraits! His artwork is designed to challenge the minds of viewers with the juxtaposing of two genres of popular culture. He often uses iconic figures and place famous cartoon characters inside to convey a certain persona associated with that icon. These images produce a feeling, the feeling of laughter and display a serious truth. He also has another style of art in which, He takes well know cartoon characters and scrambles up the faces similar to George condo style of art. It’s not his specialty but, its fun for him as a second style. His ultimate goal/mission is to become immortal through his art. He feels like as artists can live forever through their art!
