With growth as a man and maturation as an artist comes inspiration and creative influx. I have embraced a wide array of cultural influences, some of which I belong to and others I humbly admire and seek to learn as much of as possible.
I have begun a new series heavily influenced by the aforementioned as well as the stunning work of peers, including but not limited to, Laolu, Sheeba Maya, Audra Auclair, and others.
My new series, entitled "Zodiatinuda" is a word derived from "Zodiac," the 12 astrological divisions or celestial signs, and "Atinuda," the Yoruba word for "creativity."
Throughout the development and completion of this series, I plan to create 12 Afrocentric, stylized, compositions using watercolor, gouache, ink, and gold to capture the uniqueness and enigmatic quality of each astrological sign while showcasing the beauty and power of Black American and pan African cultures.
