Humes, Jr. has been a professional fine Artist for over forty years. Influenced as a youth by the Civil Rights Movements of the 70’s and 80’s in which social perception and status was based on the color of one’s skin or the place one calls home, Humes early expressions found a voice championing the plight of the homeless, urban conditions and stereotypes predicated on socio political, educational, economic prejudices and bigotry.
Humes received many national and regional awards for his signature depictions of the African-American condition. Humes studies included Florida State University, Florida International University and Miami-Dade College earning arts degrees in Fine Arts, Printmaking and Arts Education.
