KaDavien Baylor's work focuses on human transformation, social theories, and encapsulating experience. Drawing on his interest and training in communication design, Baylor combines elements of design and abstraction through many mediums. Known for his “Masters” series, Baylor creates work that focuses on the possibility of using art to promote self and social understanding. Baylor smarltly upturns human values and art values. In all aspects of his work, he contends with the notion of art is a powerful tool of communication defined by modern aesthetic and encapsulating design. Baylor has exhibited in Multicultural Center of the South (Shreveport, La), Louisiana Tech University VA Gallery (2015), Arka Art Space (2017), Bisong Art Gallery (Houston, TX) (2019), Conception Arts (2017-2019), and many group shows in the Houston, TX area. Currently, KaDavien has focused on the use of public art to educate and reiterate communities on the beauty of human existence.

How can your organization use Public Art to enrich your community?
There is a need to produce further public artwork that helps express the community's values and creates an elevated sense of awareness and belonging for community members and visitors. Art in public spaces reflects and reveals our society, enhances meaning in our civic areas, and adds uniqueness to our communities. Strengthening the identity and character of communities through public art directly supports cultural tourism and economic development strategies, which can both retain and attract residents. The attention public art can bring to a development project can be calculated. A healthy public art ecosystem also drives the growth of new businesses. A robust public art presence creates a positive environment, which supports both the physical health and mental well-being of the community.
