Art is one of the best avenues for social change. So rising Atlanta-based creative and activist is using his artistic eye and talent to create an impact. On a mission to shed light on the Black community and the LGBTQ+ community, the artist launched a visual project called “This Is 4 You,” a creative tribute to misguided youth across the globe. Nhvada aims to uplift their spirits and reassure them that they’re not alone in the fight.
Nhvada has spent years amplifying the need for inclusivity. The artist has seen both of the communities he identifies and stands for being secluded and prejudiced by the rest of the world. By unapologetically expressing himself, Nhvada aims to prove that they deserve a spot in society much like everybody else.
Nhvada has addressed students in elementary schools and shared what his mission is through interviews. He expressed that people should start working as a collective instead of leaving progress in the hands of the few. The artist believes that providing proper education to the youth is one of the most critical things society should secure for the next generation.
“As a creator, I have devoted most of my work to activism and making an unforgettable statement in whatever I do,” shared Nhvada. The music video of “This Is 4 You” was released in December 2020, and he has been exploring other ways to further his message ever since. “Being that I’m only 21 years old, I feel I could be the voice of many who don’t have the comfortability to speak freely about what they stand for,” the artist added further.
With much dedication to his craft, Nhvada has successfully created a positive change for his audience. “This Is 4 You” has sparked a movement for the youth worldwide who are suffering from loneliness. The artist believes that the visual project is an anthem for anyone who wants to scream and be free from whatever holds them from reaching the sky.
In the description of “This Is 4 You,” Nhvada said, “This is for everyone who has always been misunderstood. This is for everyone who was told they were too weird. This is for the college dropout. This is for all the LGBTQ+ kids being kicked out of their homes during a pandemic. We’re all in this together!”
Furthermore, Nhvada wants to amplify the value of staying true to oneself through “This Is 4 You.” The artist explained that it’s easy for one to look like everyone else in today’s social climate, especially with the digital space. And while conforming to what is deemed acceptable may seem easier, others even believing that following the norm is freeing, Nhvada stressed that one should always stay authentic to themselves. “I personally believe that character trait is really rare to come across nowadays,” the artist said.
In five years, the artist-activist aims for his brand to gain global traction. He wants to change the world for the greater good. Nhvada also aims to push his creative boundaries and work hard towards becoming an entrepreneur.
