Professional biography: “Father of the Black Age”

“My work has been influenced by everything and will continue to be. My focus has been to distinguish a set of concepts and design properties as a genre called Rhythmism. This adventurous intelligent contextualization would serve to take racism out of the discussion about the art derived from the Black or contemporary African experience. And focus on a future-primitive collective consciousness. Since the early 1970s I have successfully experimented with this innovation in fine and commercial art applications. Rhythmism and other innovations like it will prove to be the future of fine art. The visual arts are overdue for a true growth in its dialogue about itself. Meanwhile I have enjoyed my work.”
