The right moment to support the work of a social justice artist and activist. 

A native woman didn’t feel threatened to be painted by Issa. - Giving the current context of the MeToo campaign in the U.S., Issa was surprised she was comfortable to be painted by a man. 
Issa said: “I was an honor to paint her... but when I started applying the color on her body, I noticed that she was in tears. To paint her face, I had to make jokes to keep her face dry.”
Issa added: “I’m glad the body of work I created to heal myself from great depression could help others meet their challenges. For me, people are museums, I explore their soul.”
