"Art should change the temperature in the room"
NATIONAL BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL
Fine Art + Fashion Visual Artist Award Recipient
Charly is the 2021 Fine Art + Fashion Visual Artist Award Recipient, presented by Neiman Marcus. In 2020, Charly’s artistic voice rose above political clamor. Bigger Love, an album cover for John Legend, won a Grammy for Best R&B Album Cover in 2021. He graced the cover of Time Magazine in 2020 for the “America Must Change” Issue with the work In Her Eyes, which shows the amalgamation of past and present efforts for Black power through a child’s eyes.
