"the world awaits" 2014. produced, directed, photographed and edited by artemus jenkins

every artist knows that when winter is coming, especially down south, everything shuts down by Christmas. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I had to put my energy into making something if the next year was going to start favorably for me. so I made the decision to hop on the road with my friends who had been planning the "Atlanta Renaissance" exhibition which would take place in Wynwood during Art Basel. the art scene in Atlanta was starting to make a transition from being this underground movement and taking that energy to Miami was an opportunity to show the immense talent walking these streets daily. it was personally inspiring to me, being part of a group so focused on defining what their art can do for them, instead of waiting to be told what to do with their art, especially when most of the people doing the telling, don't know what they are talking about.
