MinneCulture | Through Storytelling and Spray Paint, Reggie LeFlore Expresses Black Joy

***
Reggie LeFlore is a muralist with street art and graffiti influences. His first solo gallery exhibition takes place at Gamut Gallery in downtown Minneapolis May 29 – June 26. He shares personal work about his life, work, and identity.

“One of the things that I’ve been noticing with, like Black art, here in the United States is that a lot of folks have been spending a lot of time talking about Black pain and Black trauma, you know, in their works,” said LeFlore. “I want to create something that expresses black joy and black beauty.”
