Nelson Zepequeno

My name is Nelson ZePequeno. I'm a Ghanaian painter and mixed media artist currently living in the U.S., residing in a small artistic community in Cincinnati, Ohio. Over the last two years of supporting myself thru painting and photography I've learned what it means to be an "African American" artist. The good and the bad's. The "good" as in the culture, struggles and history that lay behind me, which inspires and forms the framework for my art. The "bad" as in the realization that the city I currently live in and countless others do not intend to support/help/encourage young African American (minority) artists to make a living from their own creative endeavors. Not to be deterred, a small yet determined group of underground musicians, poets, photographers, models, street artists as well as myself intend to make a living based solely on the fruits of our creativity and contributions to this planet.
