The final piece Yinkore created for her residency, To the Beat of Liberty's Drum, was available as a free mint to all Meta Angels members.
Description: True freedom comes from accepting and loving yourself at whatever stage you are in life, but often there are societal structures and standards that make doing that incredibly hard. This piece symbolizes the fight against those oppressive structures and pressures in an effort to find that freedom in choosing yourself.
She is a person with multiple minority statuses; a dark skinned black bisexual woman, who knows that stories like hers are hardly ever told. She navigates her unique lived experiences by exploring themes of intersectionality and representation in the art she creates.
Using her pieces as a form of activism and voice to resist the silence people with identities like hers were taught to embrace, in an attempt to secure the portrayal of every identity possible as advancements in art continue.
Throughout the course of a year, beginning in June of 2022, Meta Angels partnered with Adobe to uplift and support emerging artists in the NFT space. Through a month-long residency, we supported, mentored, and commissioned a custom piece to give to all holders of the Meta Angels NFT. A way to bring more incredible talent to the wallets of our holders.
