The Justice Rides seem like they should be solemn, mournful affairs.

These protests, led by the NYC Street Riders, support the Black Lives Matter movement. Cyclists are raising awareness of and looking to end systemic racism. The riders protest to hold the police accountable for their actions.

But there’s something fun and exhilarating about these rides.

People are chanting, singing, the city flies by beneath our feet. You get caught up in the rhythm of the protest, the view of the next street, the next intersection, people on their stoops, people cheering you on, cars honking in solidarity.

The flag is meaningful. 

There is usually someone with a flag holding it high as the wind works to whip it out of their hands. To me there’s something deeply disturbing about the way the flag becomes a billboard, the freedom and patriotism symbolized by the flag obscured by the last words of George Floyd and Eric Garner.

My painting is hopeful.

But it also might make you feel a little uncomfortable.

Beautiful print

This is a truly excellent print. The aestehtics and craftsmanship and truly top-notch. I'm delighted to have it in my home.

Gorgeous

Since this painting depicts an iconic area of where I went to college, I have a nostalgic draw to it. But beyond that, this is a gorgeous painting that looks realistic but also artistic and a bit surreal. Michael James Freedman is an extremely talented artist and I'm very glad to have one of his prints on my wall.

Happy Memories

I love this print, it is wonderful quality, vivid and detailed. It has a nice raised New College seal too. I will treasure it and enjoy it always. Thank you.

Resembles my boy Archer so had to have it....

New College Palm Court Paintin

This painting captures the heart of a special place that New College students remember as the center of the universe. The painting is tropical, whimsical, dreamy and stirs fond memories.
