I adore art.

Particularly "[size=18pt]black art[/size]".

I got the inspiration from another thread but decided to start my own. cool
So this is a thread for all "black art" lovers. I'll post BA from black artists
from all over.

Feel free to add. If not then just enjoy. smiley

This first feature is from my favorite AA artist by the name of [size=18pt]"WAK"[/size].

Simply amazing!!!

check out his work here:

http://www.itsablackthang.com/AfricanAmericanArt.htm

he is known to create limited editions of full paintings that are purchased in halves or sections.

see a sample of two pictures he created. I fused them together of course kiss



I love her "Bantu bumps". I used to rock that 'do' as a child! grin grin

This is called:
[size=18pt]"Time Well Spent (Female)"[/size]
by Henry Battle

This picture speaks volumes!
I was going to make this my profile picture but decided not to
only because it of the cross (I am not religious and don't want to
convey that - not knocking anyone's beliefs)...but other wise this picture is a true
masterpiece!! kiss



I love the Afro.Centric vibe I get from it.
From the hair style to the gold earring. It's definitely something we all can relate to.

I love these isolated and seemingly random pictures of
black women who appear to be into themselves.

The "soul searching" and "self appreciation" pictures are the ultimate
for me. This is definitely a combination of both.

There is so much meaning to these things and only someone with an eye
for and appreciation for art know what I mean.

This segment is to appreciate the diversity
in the black race.

Skin tone, hair type and shape. Gotta love being black! kiss

I like this one. smiley

Definitely "out of the norm".

I like the bronze color used for the women's complexions and the
warm tone.

Another hot one! wink
