Wasp Elder is a socially engaged artist whose aim is to create murals that communicate with people. He often paints pictures populated by enigmatic figures and unstressed backgrounds, enticing a sentiment of an obscure journey. His paintings present an evocative combination of solitary figures, collaged scenes, close-ups and obscured features. Through this working process he is able to present often marginalized figures through a dignified representation; highlighting their humanity outside of the conflict that is seen to define them. His work is an attempt to echo how we filter information around us with the result being presented like a blurred memory or statement, not the statement itself.
Beyond Walls is a creative placemaking non profit based in Lynn, Massachusetts that uses grassroots efforts to promote stronger, more vibrant, and inclusive communities. Through projects and programming, they are committed to retaining the voice, integrity, and pride of area residents.
