I saw Leonardo’s art after we friended each other on facebook. I immediately connected to his images and I was reminded of my days studying abroad in Senegal, West Africa. I spent a lot of time at the artist village and watched the Senegalese craftsman dye fabrics and create beautiful works of art. I asked Leonardo if he’d like in share his work with our visitors and I’m happy he did.
Babatope Oyawusi (aka Bobby) is a brother I was introduced to by a friend. I spoke with Bobby and attended his art show which was presented by Apple Bottom Jeans in New York. I was pleasantly surprised by the work Bobby created and found myself captured by the messages coming from his series “Label Whores”. I am not one who is into “Labels” so I was able to appreciate this body of work.
