From the moment Brotherman hit the streets, a generation of artists and would-be artists saw that depictions of themselves was not only possible but cool. They realized that not only did they have stories to tell but now a different and unique vehicle to tell it.
They found the confidence that images of heroism, strength, intellect, and love, was neither monolithic nor absent from their own images.
The impact of Brotherman has and continues to be the creative catalyst for people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and nationalities; There is a truth that transcends boundaries
