Icons of Black History: Martin Luther King, Jr. : Digital Painting Martin Luther King, Jr. was a social activist and Baptist minister who played a key role in the American civil rights movement from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. King sought equality and human rights for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged and all victims of injustice through peaceful protest. He was the driving force behind watershed events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the 1963 March on Washington, which helped bring about such landmark legislation as the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. Interesting Fact: King entered college at the age 15. He was such a gifted student that he skipped grades nine and 12 before enrolling in 1944 at Morehouse College, the alma mater of his father and maternal grandfather. #mlk #mlkjr #icons #iconsofblackhistory #africanamericanhistory #dopeblackart #martinlutherkingjr #civilrightsmovement #africanamericanart #1960s #procreateart #procreateapp #digitalpainting #artlife #artistsoninstagram #socalartist #moorehousecollege #nobelpeaceprize #sketchbook #digitalsketch

At it again the art hustle, usually you find artist do either sacred-geometry art or Egyptian art I try to combine both styles to show that the Conection is more important than most people realize or are aware of. egyptian/Kemetic culture is where a lot of the geometricart styles first came from!🙏🏾 #kemeticyoga #kemeticscience #kemetspirit #kemeticgoddess #egyptiangoddess #goddessart #goddess #egyptianartwork #kemeticscribes #egyptianscarab #africanamericanart #geometricart #sacredgeometryart #sacredgeometryartist #silkscreenart #thaddeushunnicuttart #spiritualawakening #geometricdesign #consciousnessart

The Awakening / "Braiding Hour" . “The Awakening” focuses on familial bonds, motherhood, fatherhood & celebration of childhood. Loosely inspired by the work of Marianne Stokes whose portraits often showed the fine details of garments that were floor length and embroidered. . My camera remains my primary tool of communication, while my constant exploration of diverse ways of expression moves me to add several different layers using a variety of mediums. After a portrait session is complete, I typically digitally manipulate my subjects and unite them with other photographic components to achieve a work that is a new photographic expression (often lending to them the eyes of someone their elder). Thereafter, I may montage antique patterns and textures, vintage botanical and wildlife illustrations or hand drawn digital illustration. If I feel I am not yet complete, after each portrait is refined and printed, I may combine paint and gilding adding ornamental elements inspired by 19th century artworks. 📷 Tawny Chatmon @tawnychatmon ✒️tawnychatmon.com . . . . . . . . . #tawnychatmon #photographer #preraphaelite #photomanipulation #kerryjamesmarshall #afrostyle #africanartist #braids #hair #beautiful #oilpainting #watercolour #fridakahlo #moca #amysherald #beauty #klimt #art #gallery #ArtOfTheDay #Artistvoice #artimbarc #blackculture #artstudio #africanamericanart #visualcontent

I've been working really hard on this piece. This is called, The Funeral. My aunt passed away a couple of weeks ago, very suddenly. And it was jarring to really feel how life is so fragile and important. On the other end, I'm trying to arrange flights for my family and I've got a houseful of small small children. I had to decide not to attend the funeral because it was just too much to pull together. I was super sad. Not just because I wanted to say good bye but because of the fellowship with family. We are going to go visit soon but I decided to put my energy into a painting about this feeling. So I have been furiously painting and pouring my mourning into the canvas. This is start came out.

💎October babies! Behold your birthstone: The ravishing Black Opal! Drop a gem emoji "💎" in the comments! ⠀ This is one of my favorites from my #BirthstoneStatements series because Black is a bold, beautiful, and a luxurious color! ⠀ Check out some quick facts about Opals! : ⠀ ⠀ 1) Means "opallios" in Greek, which translates into ”to see a change in color” (Opals have many colors in them).⠀ ⠀ 2) Believed to be formed by the rain. ⠀ ⠀ 3) Found on Mars by NASA in July 2015!⠀ ⠀ 4) Has an Aboriginal Australian history. They believed this stone brought harmony. Also today, Australia produces about 95% of opals. ⠀ ⠀ Stay tuned for more in the countdown! ⠀ ⠀ Love, ⠀ Nonye 💕 ____ #artbynonye

*New Painting* My little canvases are going fast! 😍🤗💜 Here’s another 10x10 canvas, priced very reasonably (on my website), titled “What’s Free?” 😤 This one is definitely inspired by Meek Mill’s new album, and a number of documentaries I’ve indulged in lately. Also, don’t let the conservative debutante look fool you...folks always assume that I don’t listen to rap! I love some slow jams, but I’m a hardcore hip hop head, and have been for decades. So yeah, I’m smiling cuz I have to...but she’s not. —— www.ArtistryofAshleyJoi.com

“An artist must bear a special responsibility. He must be accountable for the content of his work. And that work should reflect a deep abiding concern for humanity.” Charles White
