Empowering Afro-Latinx Art

GRL TRBL Challenges Politics and Promotes Inclusivity

— May 16, 2018 — Art & Design
GRL TRBL is an art series and platform launched by Afro-Latinx artist Emerald Pellot, who draws inspiration from her Dominican and Puerto Rican roots. Challenging today's political landscape within the United States, the 28 year old aims to empower women of color with creations that range from art prints and totes to statement pins celebrating her feminist and cultural values.

After seeing a lack of representation of women in color both in the media and the art world, Pellot launched her platform in an effort to change things. "Most women of color don’t have enough people saying, ‘Look, she’s cool. You should know about her.’ I know that as someone who is Afro Latinx, I don’t see myself represented anywhere ever," said the artist to journalist Yara Simón in a recent interview for Remezcala.

Standouts from the GRL TRBL shop include Pellot's "Good Books Make Bad Girls and Dangerous Women" pins and tees, along with posters that reference Beyonce, congresswoman Maxine Waters and cult 90s film The Craft.
Trend Themes
1. Representation in Art - The trend towards greater representation in the art world presents an opportunity for innovative platforms like GRL TRBL to fill gaps and create a more inclusive space.
2. Cultural Empowerment - A growing trend towards empowering marginalized groups with cultural art allows for artists like Pellot to tap into and serve this market, creating a theme for products and merchandise that resonate with consumers.
3. Political Artistry - Increasing acceptance toward using art as a form of political activism provides space for artists like Pellot to create unique and expressive pieces that resonate with consumers and supporters alike.
Industry Implications
1. Art - The art industry presents opportunities for artists and platforms to tap into the trend towards greater representation and cultural empowerment, creating a space for diverse and unique art styles and messages.
2. Fashion - The fashion industry can transform into a platform that supports and promotes cultural empowerment, with an opportunity to provide consumers with more diverse and inclusive products.
3. Social Activism - The growing trend towards art as a tool for social activism presents opportunities for artists and entrepreneurs to tap into a market of consumers who support social justice causes.
