Dyymond Whipper-Young is a junior advertising major at Temple University who is inspiring and helping others in the community through her art. Whipper-Young is stepping outside of the classroom and showing others just how important art is to Philadelphia.
Originally from Baltimore, this young artist transformed her elementary school doodles into her own business with the strong support of her friends.
“They play such major roles in my development and my growth. And they’re always just pushing me that extra mile”, says Whipper-Young.
Temple has served as a huge platform, allowing Dyymond to showcase her sculptures and paintings. This February the freelance artist headlined her first show in the city of brotherly love, with the theme revolving around the love and support of her friends.
“She’s like really unique being that she’s twenty and she’s growing at a young age. I’m excited for the future of her”, says Leonard Chester.
Whipper-Young’s future involves inspiring and motivating other artists by giving them opportunities to showcase their work.
