“My artwork is about equality. It shows that no matter what race, skin tone, religion, sexuality, past, or appearance one has, we are all human. It features a human skeleton with cut outs to show different skin color or religion. The cut outs include a hijab woman, an African American man, a member of the LGBTQ community, a Jewish person, a person who has suffered from self-harm… I hope my artwork allows people to see that everyone is a human being and deserves rights, respect and kindness.”
