About the Artist

The Story of Naj

My name is Najee Reese, informally known as Naj. I'm a 21 year old self-taught(God anointed) artist. I've been painting seriously for 3 years and every step of this journey as been beautiful. The struggles, triumphs, and freedom that come with being a Black artist are truly amazing. I'm an ARTivist=Activist just with my paintbrush and voice. Nothing about art is a mistake, I don't believe there is a "proper way" or a "supposed to" when it comes to creating. Art just IS, and who wouldn't want to be be apart of that?

I'm excited to have you guys along on my journey be on the lookout for upcoming projects.
