Artist and Activist on Sickle Cell Najaam Lee
Today on the Social Scene with JZ we get inspired by the beautiful and talented Najaam Lee. Najaam Lee, is also known as the "rising phoenix" in the artworld. She is currently the CEO, and Artist at NL ART(www.najaamleeart.com) and resides in Boston, MA.
Born in Toronto, Najaam Lee has been creating art since the age of 5! Since being diagnosed with Sickle Cell at the age of 16 months and in and out of hospitals majority of her life, she wanted to be an advocate for the Sickle Cell Community.
On the Social Scene we learn all about her two grass roots movements called "Paint SCPain Away" and "S.O.S. Campaign" (Speak On Sickle cell). Najaam created these movements to educate the public about the disease. She also works to teach others how to battle pain associated with the disease by using art.
In 2014, Najaam Lee showcased her FIRST 9-piece series called "GALAN" at the Cutting Room in New York City. Recently, Najaam launched her second collection entitled "PAIN". This showcase of paintings was titled on a subject that is very close to her heart.
