Born and raised in West Baltimore, Ernest Shaw Jr is a product of Baltimore City Public Schools. Ernest has a B.A. from Morgan State, and M.F.A. from Howard University. Ernest’s images attempt to combat negative stereotypes of peoples of color. Honoring his ancestral lineage, community and family is most important to the artist. The artist believes that art must be used as a tool/weapon against oppression of any kind.
