So much has occurred in history to black people and so much of black culture has been lost. Even though we did not have the privilege of having a lot of our ancestor's stories or legends passed down through the generations, one thing black people have done WORLDWIDE is innovated.
As a Haitian descent, I was born in Haiti and was fortunate to have experienced A culture unlike any that African-Americans have had to deal with in America.
Racial tension was not as high as it is now when I was younger in Haiti. Unfortunately, in the United States, there is a long history of abuse, neglect, and oppression that’s been passed on black people.
With that said I believe it is very important for us to empower one another. This is the main reason why the black panther film in 2018 is so prolific because it connects black people all over the world.
To be honest, although I am not your African 100%, I felt like I was truly African after watching the film. There have been so many Memes and jokes made on Instagram and other social media platforms about the “Woke” movement.
Nevertheless, the black panther is just one of the things that we needed as a Culture II inspire us. However, inspiration can come in many forms.
The following Afrocentric T-shirts and apparel were created to inspire and to promote positive encouragement to the black youth.
James Brown once wrote a song with Alfred Ellis called “Say It Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud” the song released 50 years ago still resonates today.
My go with these T-shirts is to encourage black women and men To continue to be confident and proud of who they are. We don’t have to do it in ignorance or in an absurd way, but we can do it creatively, passionately, and boldly.
Below are 3 artworks I draw, which can be found originally from previous blog of Afrocentric Wall Art for home decor. The artwork is actually going crazy on Pinterest right now. For each of the 3 art pieces I added different quotes and titles, which all are for empowerment.
You will find artworks like this first one "Black is Beautiful", "Melanin Goddess", and more. There are also a lot more options in the actual T-shirt store.
The vast majority of the line illustration that I make today are inspired by my love for art itself. I am also very self-motivated and driven to push the boundaries of what I am capable of creating.
Learning, I believe is key for any artist's growth. I also take pride in learning how to properly incorporate symbolism, meaning and purpose into my craft.
Looking at the drawings on the page you will see various elements like precious stones, butterfly wings, and stairways and more incorporated in the Afrocentric artworks. All which speak to a message.
Making a great artwork is only as great as subject matter. All things considered, nobody cares to see art that isn't engaging and nobody will even take a second look at something if they are now blown away by it at first glance.
I am continually developing as a visual artist and continually enhancing my illustration skills. I mostly use a Faber Castel pitt pen to draw the line artworks that I do.
There are a lot of artworks I haven't share online in the past 3 years, that I am working to blog over the next for days, weeks and throughout the year.
Nevertheless, a lot of thought and effort goes into creating each piece of art you see on the website or this post. Enough about that, enjoy the rest of the post.
For years I've had friends and family pushing me to start my own t-shirt business, but I never had the reason to.
These shirts are the beginning of what I believe can cause a chain of reaction in empowering the black community. Words of affirmation is important in building confidence and so much more.
