J.T. Liss is an East Harlem based photographic artist and poet for social change. His work consists of multiple layers, sometimes up to 18 different photographs merged together, to create hidden imagery that reflect metaphorical meanings related to society, inequality, religion, love and the universe around and within us.
Along with his art, J.T. tells stories and writes poetry to further explain each piece and give the viewer an in-depth look at his truth. His work has been featured in multiple exhibits throughout NYC and recently he was given the honor of exhibiting at "60 The Collective", featuring 60 of the best urban and street artists in NYC. J.T. also has commissioned artwork at Harlem Public and multiple pieces are on permanent display at tascbar, a co-working space in East Harlem.
"My artwork is interactive. It allows the viewer to immerse themselves in the layers and see images that no one else has seen. Images that are unique to their own eye. My stories and poetry serve as a guide for a conversation, and my true hope is that when we are finished both of us have learned a little something from one another. For if a new thought can enter the mind, even for the briefest of moments, then change has a chance."
