Hi, and welcome to issue 4 of NFT Matrix, where I review NFT Artists’ work. There is no presumption or judgement here, only exposure. The fourth artist I am reviewing is Jahmel Reynolds, from LA, CA. Visually arresting and introspective is how I would characterize his work. I look at a couple of his pieces from his various platforms/social media and provide my review. Hope you enjoy, I’m always open to feedback.
