This portrait is one of my favorites one because of the details in its skin.

I could assure that
if we wear a mask,
wig, even a clown nose
we could feel free to act as we want.
enjoy it and feel something like freedom
either you would feel trapped in an identity
that does not correspond to you.
Fell free anytime
My name is Mayro Toyo, a visual artist. Drawing during my childhood was like a game then becomes a habit that would accompany me for the rest of my life. I always have been curious and would delve into simple things.
Innovating is essential. I work with new materials and techniques frequently; I am in constant development and have a lot of fun in the meantime.
My technique is spontaneous, and the concept is about introversion. It’s alive. I paint mostly people, portraits, identities. It’s human. My art conveys feelings and emotions. I think words are inadequate to explain my art. Art must speak for itself.@mayrotoyoart
Charlotte, NC – Spring 2018
On February 24th, 2018 Warren Publishing will be sponsoring Lit. for the Culture!, a kid-friendly cultural event to take place at Central Piedmont Community College CATO Campus from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event will feature four local African American children’s authors—Shimah Easter, Jessica McEachern, Kimberly Dixon, and Carmen Jimenez. “We’re brown girls turned brown women and we’ve all published children’s books featuring brown characters,” said Easter.
The event will also spotlight various local organizations with roots in Charlotte’s contemporary black culture. These organizations include the Legacies of Light, Naomae Stitch, and Cara B. Natural.
The event is free and open to the public and welcomes young readers along with their families. Guests are encouraged to meet with the authors, learn about the publishing process, purchase books, and enjoy live readings of each of the works, all while celebrating Black History month.
Shimah Easter is the organizer of this event and is available for interviews. For more information, please contact Malinda “Mindy” Kuhn at Warren Publishing by phone at (704) 900-0236 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m sure most people can relate to having issues with emotional boundaries in relationships (like maybe all you moms of little ones who haven’t peed with the door closed in a few years?) but there are also the boundaries of our physical bodies in space- kind of.
Have you ever had acupuncture and felt all fuzzy and in the midst of your groovy nap-like-meditation-state realized that you don’t feel where your body ends and the space around you begins anymore? Like all your atoms were starting to spread out and float away? Just me?? We’re convinced there are defined limits to what we think of as “self” but what happens when we scale down and see that we’re made of atoms that are mostly made of space? Or that there are far more bacterial cells holding our body together than human ones?I love to picture what this cartoon-Fantasia-version of this tiny science would look like. The beautiful, awe-inspiring energy of it all. The boundaries, the membranes, the movement and scale of life. This is why I paint what I paint.

Alchemy. Taking blank material and transforming it into something else, is fairly spectacular. Sometimes the intention is not even apparent. This creative process is very interesting and inspiring.
There is such a unique beauty to go from blank canvas to an explosion of color or a creative vibrant script. I hope for the rest of my life to transform my truth into a reflective image.

The beauty of creation lead me here today. I don’t know if I truly accept this. I am a part of a tribe. A tribe built on color, texture, and imagination. A visual epilogue of brilliance. Am I worthy of such mental dexterity? Do I tremble before my forefathers of thought? I am beholden to this refuge of peace. Oh, to be with others who see the same vision as I do. What a beautiful thought.
For years I took for granted what was gifted to be. For years I hid like a scared animal, craving the limelight but was intimidated by the glare. Our voices should be heard, so they are added to the spectrum. Yes, we may be turned away. To only those who are blind.
That is okay. I want to be seen, from where I create.
Artist Jennifer Shepit resides in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada where she constructs other galaxies with her bare hands, a bit of paint, and universes of imagination, so much so that I found myself sending poetry over to her to request her visual representation of my work. When I laid eyes on this piece of art, I love it so much that I am not even sharing a photo of it in this post as it is the part of a larger project that I cannot wait to reveal. I will say that it is more beautiful in person than it was in the image that she sent me upon completion, and I am stingily am holding onto the painting only parceling out glimpses to others as though it is a secret lover.
