Cynthia Walker and Evan Bishop
“I Have A Dream…” is the first collaborative work of art by Cynthia Walker and Evan
Bishop. The former, a self-taught artist and creator of KatoriKids, whose style attracts the attention of the inner child in us all, and the latter, who took his foundation in graffiti art, lead him toward formal training in a plethora of mediums.
They utilized soft pastels to depict Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holding a young girl as he
delivers his legendary “I Have A Dream” speech during the March on Washington in
1963. As if he is speaking directly to her, this KatoriKids character reaches towards the
heavens to embrace the butterfly (a symbol of freedom). The mountains in the
background are in reference to Dr. King’s speech.
