Bobby Rogers ’14 is a Minnesota-based visual artist who explores black culture and identity through his work.
As a child, Rogers taught himself how to draw from coloring books, Pokémon cards, and animated movies. Though his main focus at MCAD was illustration, Rogers now dabbles in several aspects of the creative world. He's a freelance visual artist, a designer with CRS Architecture and Design, a design assistant manager at Juxtaposition Arts, and a contributing photographer at Royal Magazine.
"Most recently I’ve examined the deniability of blackness through photography, a medium initially created to not recognize blackness as worthy, to depict blackness as one of the most beautiful creations."
