I came across this sister’s site while scoping the web for some Funky Stuff! and I was blown away by her creativity with keeping the images of 1970′s Funk alive. The images quickly reminded me of the Blaxploitation film era. The art is funky, crazy kool and I had an immediate connection with her designs. A couple of emails back and forth and Desiree was happy to be apart of The Museum of UnCut Funk Family and we can’t get enough of that funky stuff!
Lena Horne, whose striking beauty and magnetic sex appeal often overshadowed her talent and artistry, was remarkably candid about the underlying reason for her success: “I was unique in that I was a kind of Black that white people could accept,” she once said.
I had the pleasure of representing Cedric Smith in my galley, Eclectic Connection, several years ago. He is one of the nicest artists I have had the opportunity to work with. I loved his art then and I love it now. I can’t get enough of that Funky Stuff!
