We’re working hard to keep our space safe and socially-distanced during the Gift of Art Exhibition, and we are grateful to everyone who’s come out, supported the artists and INDEED given the gift of art. For those of you who cannot make it – or simply want a closer look – we’ve brought you the entire show on line. Meet dynamic Detroit artist Maliek Phillips. We are proud to feature his art and gracious spirit in the show:

Maliek Phillips is from the west side of Detroit and attended Renaissance High School, where he excelled in academics and sports. In 2014, he began his creative expression in music. He began recording on a cellphone and developed a form of expression he now describes as “Feelism – expression, mostly pertaining to art that conveys a temporary moment of awe or amazement.” Today, he is a self described creative. He’s used his venture into music and found wholesome love for media arts, as well as art in general. Maliek has since written and illustrated a children’s book, Rashad is Sad for a Reason (2018) and starred in a short drama, On the Count of Three (2018). His Original Feelism paintings and mixed-media visual artworks have been beloved, exhibited, and collected throughout Detroit, including the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American Art.
