The Black Lives Matter movement represents an inflection point in the psyche of the world, and the South Asian community, like many others, has been reflecting, listening, and standing in solidarity with the Black community. Many have turned to art to express their feelings of support and sisterhood. Here we feature art by a few South Asian artists: Meera Agarwal (@meeraworldart), Dhiya Choudhry (@travellingchair), and Zoe Harveen Kaur (@ZHKDesigns) and by Jeff Sparr (@peacelove).
Previously a high-tech PR professional in Silicon Valley, Rye, NY-based Meera Agarwal is pursuing a second career as an artist and art teacher.
