Africa the Luminous, the Coveted

Description: 18″x14″ acrylic on canvas panel. This painting represents the quintessential Africa, from ancient times until now. It’s a celebration of the Motherland’s monumental contributions to civilization that have deliberately been omitted from history books. This piece defeats the label of “dark continent” given to Africa, a continent whose spiritual and material resources continue to support the prosperity of western societies around the globe. “Africa: the Luminous, the Coveted” symbolizes the uncelebrated evolutionary flux that has molded the spiritual, mathematical, artistic, scientific genius for centuries and that has spread all over the planet.
