They allow Mer$ to delve into the depths of color, form, and texture, creating a dynamic interplay with the characters. Through this, Mer$ sets to evoke a sense of movement, energy, and emotion in the works . Mer$ strives to challenge preconceived notions and expand the boundaries of what contemporary art can be. Mer$ art is a celebration of  black diversity, an invitation to explore the intersection of black popular culture and abstract expression, and a reminder that art has the power to unite us through the universal language of creativity.''.
