Young. Gifted. Black. Doudgy (Dew the Artist) Charmant is January’s Blank Space SE feature for a reason. D3w’s World, opening on 1/15/2021 at The HIVE 2.0, is a unique interpretation of life through Charmant’s eyes. Black womanhood, spirituality, and politics are at the core of this unique showcase, separating this 22-year-old from the pack in the Capital region.
D3w’s work gives a voice to those who are ignored and enlighten others. His works bring awareness to internal conflicts that often go unnoticed, such as; depression, self-hate, self-enslavement, & the results of heartbreak. In a world where women and people of color are consistently misrepresented, he finds himself using colors, astral elements, and unique concepts to accurately portray their plight. Dew’s mediums consist of acrylic paint, Prismacolor markers, Copic markers, and ink. Through these mediums and a canvas, he reveals the different natures within the human persona, the power they hold within, and the different types of shackles that enslave them.
