Black Joy, Black Power, Black Creativity: The Artwork of FRANK DORREY

Frank Dorrey’s artwork is so Black! Frank Dorrey’s artwork is so Powerful! Frank Dorrey’s artwork is so US! Frank Dorrey’s artwork is so Our Story! Frank Dorrey’s artwork is so True! Frank Dorrey’s artwork is so Beautiful. When I look at some of his pieces, I see our disturbing past that was formed by our trauma. When I look at some of his pieces, I see our celebrations of Blackness that was formed by our ancestors and our love for life. Dorrey’s work is distorted and twisted, like the way the dominant society wants us to see ourselves — but even within that vision I see our victories! The way he’s able to balance colors and vibes is off the chain. When I stare at his work, I know that I’m looking at greatness. Dorrey’s art is straight Punk Rock — the fact that he creates all of his work on an iPhone is punk as fuck. The stories in his digital paintings resonate with me so much, and to say that I’m impressed would be a lie, because Frank Dorrey’s art blows my mind.
