In honor of Breonna Taylor's 27th birthday, Denny created this amazing piece.
However if you check out his instagram you can see how he has honored many of the lives lost this year due to police brutality and shows how they were lost such as in this image.
He started a series called the "Stolen Series" in which he colors in the faces of those who have been victims of police brutality for the amount of minutes that equal the age they were killed at.
This picture is of TonyMcDade who was 38 years old when he was killed. Which means this picture was colored in for 38 minutes.
