ART TODAY 021418 Martin Luther King – Called to Serve (new art) by Synthia SAINT JAMES

by

“MLK: Called To Serve”  –  Oil & Acrylic on Canvas – 30×24″
The painting is available as Limited Edition Giclees on Canvas in several sizes and prices in Synthia’s “Square Up” Store:  https://squareup.com/store/atelier-saint-james

I was so honored when the City of Rocky Mount, NC, the city where Dr. King first gave his “I Have A Dream” speech nine months before he delivered it at the March on Washington, chose me to be the Keynote Speaker for the 30th anniversary of their MLK Unity Breakfast (which was held on Monday, January 15, 2018). I was truly humbled when I received a standing ovation for my presentation.

In preparation of my speech I read the Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr., which inspired the painting “MLK: Called To Serve”.  The painting includes Mahatma Gandhi, because his life and non-violent approach to change so influenced Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement.

I’ve created over 150 fake album covers for bands that don’t exist, as well as fake concert posters and T-shirts. I’ve also enlisted a music company called Jingle Punks to create original music and we’re releasing our first record on vinyl called “Rohit Records Greatest Hits Volume 1.” I’ve also directed a music video for one of the songs called “Coastal Elites.” So to answer your question, that’s my new favorite piece of writing/art/music.
