A Queer Black Voice on Canvas

The Great Room Gallery | Gallery Hours: Tue. – Thr., 3:00 – 6:00p
New Haven Pride Center, 84 Orange Street, New Haven


The artist known as Jaii Marc Renee has been an artist since his early years, when he began to draw cartoons for family and friends. It wasn’t until high school that he picked up a brush for the first time and it was not love at first sight.

Like almost every artist, he struggled to find his identity or “style,” sporadically painting for years after his introduction in a high school art class. Self-esteem and mental health played an adverse role, clouding the road to self-identity, but it was this same adversity that paved the way for the artist he is today.

About the Artists

Jaii Marc Renee

Through his art, Jaii Marc Renee (he/him) channels the difficult symptoms of bipolar depression, putting his heart on the canvas and letting his art function as a form of catharsis. His art explores Black identity, queer identity, and the intersections thereof.
