In 2010 I formed my own company, InqueWerkz D zynez, where I was able to fulfill a dream of doing what I love to do, creating thought-provoking art.
After nearly 20 years of hesitation, procrastination, and continuous reconsideration, I am finally able to pursue my dream. A dream which was to create art under my own power, my own inspiration, within my own business. With the help of friends and family, I began taking digital pictures of my accumulative artwork, reformatting those works stored electronically, gathering art resources, slowly creating new pieces, and completing personal research in order to take on this daunting task of publicly showcasing and selling my work.
I also had to thoroughly think about what my artwork would portray and what my company or logo would mean to the buyer or prospective consumer. I definitely want to produce high-quality art, but it is equally important for InqueWerkz to sell more than just another picture on the wall. I want my artwork to be theme-riddled and thought-provoking.
I want my business to be a personal experience, meaning I want to be publicly accessible through art exhibitions, and historically African-American venues. I also want to be continuously visible within African American communities. I believe that art is an expression of the soul, should be available to all, and be mentally and visually stimulating.
InqueWerkz D zynez was formed with all these aspirations in mind. It has been 20 years too long, and I thank all those who contributed to this project for their support and patience.
I am not yet who I will be, but not nearly who I was so just round me off to the nearest me!
