Shattering the Glass Ceiling
From searching for his identity to putting everything out there for the world to see, Levi Nelson is now showcasing his culture and strong beliefs through contemporary aboriginal artwork. While he was always creative, it wasn't until he was truly proud of who he was that he realized his true calling was painting. It's not often an art student who gets to host their very own exhibit, but this emerging artist broke the barrier and he has something to say.
