Artwork: I'm Just Me, I'm Just Free by Asia-Vinae Jazzreal Palmer
I’m just me, I’m just free
By Asia-Vinae Jazzreal Palmer in collaboration with BreakOUT!
Artists Statement: "We Are Here is my way of archiving the love, light, and power in the TGNC communities of New Orleans. I wanted to use last year’s concept “Give us our roses while we’re still here” as a foundation and show the world that we can also flower and love ourselves. And we do, everyday. This is a piece about unapologetic existence is whatever way we chose to grow.”
Asia-Vinae J. Palmer, AKA Preach has known they’ve had something to say from a young age. Born in California, aged in Eunice, Louisiana, and seasoned in New Orleans, they welcome change and work towards growth. With a writer for a mother and a painter for a father, art and literature played a big role in Asia-Vinae’s upbringing. As a visual artist, Asia-Vinae is determined to get their messages out with love and light and to use their art as seeds for something much bigger than themselves.
