We love this poster sent to shuktara all the way from San Francisco! This is the first installment of a series of three posters by Llane Alexis and George McCalman. When we wanted to know more about this amazing poster this is what Llane said:

There is a story indeed. Every single shot of my own hands was taken with my iPhone right after I woke up in the morning. Those were very painful mornings for me dealing with depression and a broken heart and maybe even desperation. I was throwing signs as meanings of expressing my pain and cries for help.

I don't know sign language but I express my heart with my hands as they are the tools of my art. Also it was the moment of the rise of the #BlackLivesMatter movement at the same time. So it was a combination of all of the above. Then my friend George and I decided to print the images. This is the first installment of a series of three posters.

The second poster will be the hands of black hands makers around my world. The third poster will feature the art work of these black makers interpretation of black hands. And yes it will come with an art show presenting the actual works.

Thank you Llane Alexis Dominguez & George McCalman!
