Full Artist's statement

The mythos of an afro-futuristic community existing somewhere between the physical and spiritual world is told through a series of paintings and fineliner pen drawings.  As the inhabitants of this community pass on, they leave behind their stories and memories embedded into the surrounding environment.  To honor thier ancestors, the living weave parts of nature into their clothes, hair, masks, and daily routine.

All work by Michael
