Since its debut in the 1950’s graphic t-shirts have been a radical staple in American fashion. By simply putting on a graphic tee, its wearer can convey his/her beliefs, sense of humor, heritage and so much more without even speaking a word. Many organizations and brands have leveraged the power of graphic tees to advance their agendas and I am doing the same with The She-Shirt Project. This project consists of nine paintings of Black women wearing graphic tees with messages about Black womanhood that are not adequately represented or conveyed in the media and definitely not in the art world. The project broaches topics about sexual identity, financial stability, racism, pop culture and alternative religious beliefs.

Abi Salami is a self-taught artist who creates large-scale surrealist works that explore her experiences as a Nigerian immigrant and Black woman in the United States. Through the use of a personal visual lexicon made up of symbols, she explores topics such as memory, mental health and race. Based in Dallas, Texas, she earned a Masters in Professional Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin and worked in Corporate America for almost a decade before committing to painting full-time. Since then, she has gone on to exhibiting in Dallas and across the United States including at The Women’s Museum, the African American Museum of Art in Dallas, Band of Vices Gallery in Los Angeles and Field Projects in New York City. She was the winner of the 2021 Hopper Prize. She was selected as a candidate of the Saatchi Art 2020 Rising Stars under 35 Class and a 2021 New Voices Top 100 Artists. She and her work have been featured on the Washington Post, New York Times, Artland, Artsy, D Magazine, Glasstire and Patron Magazine.
