Curly Musings From Around the Web

Curls make you want to dance?

Just came across the artwork of Jamilla Okubo, a Kenyan artist and textile designer currently attending Parsons and majoring in Integrated Fashion Design.  Prints and paint, Okubo’s colorful illustrations carries what I see as the promise of a very creative and successful future. Can’t wait to see what more this young student has to offer.

Afros Meet Mixed Media 

 By Tim Okamura. If you haven’t come across his work before, it’s about time you did! Represented by galleries in New York, Canada and Italy, Okamura is an extraordinary painter who "investigates identity, the urban environment, and contemporary iconography through a unique method of painting - one that combines an essentially academic approach to the figure with collage, spray paint and mixed media."
