Fahamu Pecou, artist and scholar whose work combines observations on hip-hop, fine art, and popular culture. Pecou is profoundly involved with exploring the state of Black existence – life and death – in his work. In the midst of the endemic and pervasive threat of violence that is often a fact of life for young black men the artist asks, “Under looming threat of death, how can we inspire life? Through what mechanisms could we resist the psychological violence and despair inspired by the threat of violence and usher in hope? Or how might art serve as a ‘space of resistance?'”
