Dwayne Lester – Laurel, MD

My art has been a journey of self-discovery and self-expression as a man who celebrates the African American experience and our achievements in sports and music history. It is the process by which I choose to explore my past, and the past of African Americans in the music and sports Industry, despite the roadblocks that have been thrown at us.

I am intrigued by sports and music in any capacity and of all cultures – and what has been internally deemed worthy of remembering. Is it truly possible to re-visit oneʼs past when the information stored has been inevitably distilled by time, dreams, love and fear?

My memories are both a source of pain and healing. My memories of music and sports are what I tap into when creating my art.
