Black artists have played an integral part in shaping the global art and entertainment industry to what it is today. From introducing innovative concepts to challenging societal norms to delivering thought-provoking and impactful pieces, Black artists have set a strong precedent worldwide.
During the third edition of the Global Black Impact Summit (GBIS), award-winning painter, photographer, poet, filmmaker and recording artist Sage Gallon will deliver a live art performance. Gallon’s series of paintings created throughout the summit will showcase and celebrate Black excellence in art, inspiring those across the global Black community. The paintings will be also auctioned during the event’s Gala Dinner.
A self-taught artist, Gallon made his entry into the art world in 2013 with a group show. Since this debut, he has become a sought-after artist, having been named in NBC’s The Grio as one of the 40 Artists to Watch. His works have been collected and exhibited in galleries across the United States. In addition to art, Gallon wrote and produced a series of critically acclaimed short films while two of his four documentaries have won awards.
Across various disciplines, Gallon has made his mark, and his participation at GBIS aligns seamlessly with the event’s core mission of fostering a sense of collective strength and solidarity among Black individuals across the globe. His artwork, known for its ability to convey powerful messages and emotions, will serve as a visual representation of the unexplored potential within the Black community.
Widely recognized for his evocative and thought-provoking artworks, Gallon’s live art performance will contribute to the overarching theme – Black Excellence: Unleashing the Explored Potential for Global Unity – through the medium of art. His live painting sessions throughout the event will capture the essence of unity, resilience, and creativity within the Black community. Attendees of the summit can look forward to witnessing Gallon’s creative process in real-time, as he translates the themes of Black Excellence and global unity onto canvas. His live painting sessions will be interspersed throughout the two-day event, providing moments of reflection and inspiration for participants.
