ABOUT THE ARTIST:
"I am an Artist with a passion for creativity that tells a story. Through my drawings, I create unique stories that motivate and inspire communities. Growing in Detroit taught me how to work fast, multitask, and to become self-motivated. I love Detroit because it is a city of creative, diverse, and inspirational people.
The linear, circular, geometric, and organic symbols and patterns represent an improvised rhythm throughout my work that is very musical. They are a visual jazz that gives excitement, interest, and spontaneity to the person or place being captured. My subject matter is drawn from people, places, and social issues in the Black and Christian communities. I believe these people and subject matters can give a unique story of how I see the world.
I want to build the communities in Detroit through art and community engagement. I think that by focusing locally my work and the people I interact with will impact others on a larger scale. I believe that art can transform lives and give an outlet for youth to explore uncharted territories in creativity." - Nbubisi Okoye
