Brooklyn born visual artist Jayden Ashley explores the complexities and impact of Black culture within Western society. Ashley's work delves into historical experiences of African-Americans, with the aim of unraveling the parallels that exist between past and present issues facing the Black community in the Western world. 


Through artistic exploration of cultural identity, relations, and conflicts, Ashley creates intricate artworks that provoke viewers to question the role racial dynamics play in Western society. 


There is a constant double consciousness possessed by Black individuals in knowing that how one looks and feels may not align to how one is perceived in a white-dominated society. Ashley uses his work to bridge the gap between the lived experience of being Black in western society and those who perceive it.
