A selection of work by Brooklyn-based artist Yashua Klos who collages woodblock prints as a way of exploring “Blackness as an identity in flux – fragmenting, constructing and deconstructing as strategies for survival.” When he was a teenager, Klos experienced a pivotal moment in his life, a brutal conflict with police which ultimately revealed his defiant spirit. He explains, “Today, we are hyper aware of the daily systematic threats to Black life, yet Blackness insists upon survival and beauty in defiance to these threats.” Have a look at Klos’ work below.
