Watson Mere, Tallahassee Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement I’ve always believed that a portrait captures a person far better than a photograph. It truly takes a human being to really see a human being. -Unknown
Hello, My name is Watson Mere. I am a Twenty-Three year old male of Haitian descent with no formal education in art, just something I have been doing since the age of two. Since that age I’ve fallen in love with creating art and I consider art my passion and not a skill but instead a GOD given gift that i intend to exercise. Mostly all of my art is created using the Microsoft Paint Platform with no other enhancements. My art tells a story, some depicting my own lifes loves, struggles, confusions, frustrations, happiness and pains. The African American culture is one forged through oppression.. All of the negative aspects that plague our culture are the result of centuries of oppression and the loves, struggles, confusions, frustrations, happiness and pains that plague the children from once great kingdoms is the story I tell through my art. Follow our journey into a forgotten history. For if you do not know where you came from your path through life is clouded. We our evidence of this theory. These are our stories… Enjoy the art and GOD bless.
