Last weekend I was part of the African Festival of The Arts here in Chicago. It was Great! The weather the turnout and the response to the work was Wonderful! I haven’t done a festival (solo) and with only my Artwork in YEARS! Although it is not easy to sell originals, prints or any quality Artwork at a festival I met with a lot of people, gained support and I was encouraged.
The goal of my Art is to show people how beautiful and powerful we as African people Are, Period. It seems that people are able to recognize this in my work whether they fully grasp that or not. At the end of All of the work people must know that Blackness is the Most Beautiful thing in this world. We are Gods & Goddesses and we are The Most Beautiful, Amazing, thing in this world. Everytime you look at my work I want it to whisper, remind & reflect that.
