ARTIST: Alfie Numeric
As described by Joseph Padilla of Look Inside Magazine, "Alfie Numeric's art successfully captures the essence within women of color surviving in an urban world of emotions, thoughts, and struggles of identity. Her canvas is a mirror which reflects her soul and the soul of millions of kindred spirits world wide. While the presence of her artwork, and her as an artist, is integral to the survival of the Los Angeles Indy scene, she is transcendent and can not be pigeon holed by it. Her artwork is a universal language understood world wide."
