"The biggest challenge is being compared to other young black artists, because we're all so unique. I feel like there's a movement of young black artists on the Internet right now who come from all over. The problem is people only want to see one "black artist" shine at a time when there's enough room in the art world for all of us; we don't have to be labeled as just black artist but as artists in general. It's also a challenge knowing some people may only see my work as urban or black art when I don't want to be categorized. For those who really are paying attention they see the differences between us and can really appreciate the variety of art we are getting to see now." - Darius Moreno
