FINE ARTS – DRAWING: “Artist, Avalon Hester, Creates Time-Lapse of Drawing George Floyd” / NowThis News ☮

In US news and current events today, this time-lapse of an artist drawing George Floyd lasts 8 minutes and 30 seconds — roughly the same amount of time Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck.

After the police killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, and countless other Black people in America, the resulting George Floyd protests and Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality, police racism, and police violence have put systemic racism in the spotlight as BLM protesters take to the streets in support of police reform, racial justice and civil rights. 8 minutes and 46 seconds has become a rallying cry of sorts for George Floyd protests, the amount of time the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck until he died. 8 46 is an agonizingly long time, which is why artist Avalon Hester created this time-lapse George Floyd drawing to last as long, a statement that is itself a suitable George Floyd tribute and George Floyd art.
