YoYo Lander is an autodidactic painter living and working in Los Angeles, CA. YoYo’s visions emanate from all that surrounds her, she draws inspiration from personal photographs and stories from the women around her. She believes that art is perhaps the greatest vessel black people have to preserve their true narratives. In 100 years from now a young art historian will come across black American art. What narrative will they assume about our culture based off of the art we create today? "We can't leave it up to anyone else to tell our stories. Our Stories. Our Responsibility."
