Historically, People of Colour (POC) have been underrepresented in the media. This is true even within the art industry. Because of this, POC are always looking for ways to represent themselves and their culture. M.Falconer is a Black artist who has identified with this struggle and aims to fill the void for people like her. By creating pop art paintings based on Black culture, POC will now have a new source from which to express themselves and their Blackness. In essence, M.Falconer’s paintings are bold, colourful and powerful think pieces that speak to the culture.
Views for the Future
M.Falconer’s mission is to use art to empower POC and to speak for the culture. The vision is for M.Falconer to be globally recognized as a lifestyle brand that represents Black culture and Pop culture through bold and colourful art!
