Messiah is a visualization of the quest for liberation and cultural connection across the African diaspora. From the words of Kwame Nkrumah to the bandoliers of the Black Panther Party to the Jagged Lines of the Africobra Art Movement to the militaristic uprising of Thomas Sankara’s Burkina Faso, I aim to forge links through a new found visual language that unites people of African heritage both here and abroad. This is the work of Pan Africanism. Thus, this is a Pan-African collection. All black, beads/shells from both the Yoruba and Harlem girl’s hair, patterned faux leathers, military vest with jewels and floral lace linings all coalesce on the bodies of free, sensual black men. Black freedom, transgression, and unity reimagined.
