I met with artist, educator and philosopher, G.A. Gardner who opened his studio in Washington, DC, and shared with me a great conversation about his art work and what inspires him.

In this video interview we also talked on what is like being an artist and living in DC, about his Caribbean heritage via Trinidad & Tobago and his views on the African diaspora, among other topics.
GA wants to see more art in the streets of Washington, DC. He says this city lacks of enough public art "outside of the box" for people of its neighborhoods to enjoy, and I agree.
Currently, Gardner is working with different techniques using prints and mixed media collages, with acrylics mostly. Among his work is a popular Obama poster and a Zora Neale Hurston mural at the Eatonville restaurant in DC.
