I selected these artists for a lot of reasons. What we find in their work is what I often sought as a youngster; fan illustrations, I wish I find images that stick in my black daughter of reality: religion, imaginary stories, daily life, family life, school, work, etc. Anything in which I could identify. I discovered with pleasure more and more committed artists who transcribe this reality through beautiful drawings and portraits of exceptional people and life! These illustrators chose to bring a large part of surrealism, something that is lacking in the African culture in works produced today! I invite you to form your own opinion!
His work is absolutely accurate, he mastered portraits faithfully reproducing the Negroid features and sublimating blacks. It provides the moving portraits of dreams and slices of life. He draws on command, so do not hesitate!

Paul Davey African American
His amazing work in surrealism actually my favorite artist, a message behind each image, a mastery of digital and colors that allow a perfect connection to express his emotions.
Kehinde Wiley Nigerian
It is a fascinating work that the artist created, with portraits of real people that have been discovered through wild cast and he mixes with colorful backgrounds and beautiful which surprisingly contrast with the postures of the models. A committed work sending disturbing and sometimes sensual messages with often different physical beauty standards.
Pierre Chevelin the Haitian
It’s all in a big way to link the history of a people in his descendants, the storytelling of this artist is very realistic, especially in the representation of blacks in history that is told. It also includes extraordinary and fantastic stories deserve to be told to children! Sublime and addictive!
