In 2012, Black elevated his status to an international level when he released his "Leather Bound in Black or Red" collection, which exposed his childhood in the Jehovah's Witness religion as well as his "escape" from the religion at age 17. The collection garnered worldwide attention with paintings being purchased by people in the United States, Australia, Germany, the UK, and Sweden.
Black's work is part of private and corporate collections including cosmetics giant Lancome, Chicago Bulls Quarterback Jay Cutler, Radio Personality Elvis Duran, Television Personality Kris Jenner, Socialite and "Laguna Beach" alum Kristin Cavallari, and The Point Foundation CEO Jorge Valencia.
The September 5 artist reception will be an intimate event and is open to the public. For more information please vist www.moeinmade.com or www.jessblackart.com
