NATIONAL BLACK ART FESTIVAL
Fine Art + Fashion Visual Artist Award Recipient

Charly is this year’s Fine Art + Fashion Visual Artist Award Recipient presented by Neiman Marcus. In 2020, Charly’ artistic voice rises 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.
