Opening Reception for Damon Davis Exhibition.

Sad Panther is an animated music video by acclaimed post-disciplinary artist Damon Davis.

Damon Davis’ practice is a symbiosis of therapy and social commentary, working across a spectrum of creative mediums to tell stories. Damon writes, “My work is rooted in the black American experience because that is my experience. My work as of late is about how identity is informed by mythology and story. I use mythology to create conversation around how we see ourselves and others. I have created work that brings people together and fortifies the souls of the people in the most pain and the most struggle. Now, I make work not only focusing on pain but on the joy of those people. I am having a conversation with myself, and when that conversation is made public, my hope is that people can see themselves in my work and it helps them grow, along with myself.”
