Opening Reception:

Bailey is a self-taught artist whose visual vocabulary crosses mediums to create works that focus on highlighting the beauty of blackness. They aim to offset the anti-blackness that permeates society and provide the representation that they so desperately wanted to see growing up.

Bailey’s work has been publicly installed at Afro Homestead in Allentown, PA, the People’s Fridge in West Philly, in a series of four banners adorning East Market, the walls of the Student Life and Wellness Building at Bryn Mawr, whose goal is redefining wellness through inclusivity and accessibility, and a 30-foot long mural at the Philadelphia International Airport.

Their work was also on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art as part of an exhibition of Mural Arts’ First 100 Days, an art project designed to engage the public around policy issues that could be addressed in the new presidential administration.

Commercially, Bailey has collaborated with local ice cream purveyor Weckerly’s Ice Cream, Triple Bottom Brewing Company and the #solidblack campaign for Doritos.
