Jamaican Stuart Robertson is one of 16 artists who contributed to a 245’X17’ Black Lives Matter street mural in Palo Alto, California. The artwork is a response to the Black Lives Matter Movement that has raised the world’s consciousness on race.
Robertson added colours of the Pan-African and Jamaican flags in the quilt-like patterns of his "R" in "Matter”. He says the mural is a performative gesture and much more needs to be done to safeguard the rights of black people against police brutality.
"We could do without the mural," he told Palo Alto Weekly. "But it's good that the community is generating awareness. It's a way to make the conversation more visible."
