No Justice, No Peace.

The murder of George Floyd, a 46-year old Black man from Minneapolis, has sparked protests all over the world. Floyd was killed by four officers; three stood and watched while one kneeled on his neck until Floyd died of asphyxia. In honor of George Floyd and the countless African Americans who have died at the hands of racial profiling and police brutality, Grace Briquelet has painted three portraits of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd.
