Two Featherʼs latest body of work has continued to develop his fictionalized historical narrative, where colonists from the European super-power “Frengland” wage battle against “New Holland.” Blending colonialism and contemporary urban street culture, Two Featherʼs has established a broad macro-narrative via his intercontinental, empire-building struggles, while also creating a deeply nuanced micro-narrative of characters that love, lust, greed, and connive their way through the artists take on the 18th century.
