Artwork Description: This African tribal paintings was created from studying original African art sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The tribal wall art has a wonderful abstract quality giving it a modern sophistication.
The dominant colors in these artworks are red, earth tones, yellow, green and cerulean blue.
I made seven drawings from the African Art collection during a visit and painted them with watercolors later in my studio. The African artifact for this painting was sculpture of an anonymous African woman, possibly the girlfriend of the artist. These abstract interpretations would look great in your house and complement your modern global home decor.
Latest developments and understanding of Aesthetic principles, religious and ceremonial values, have brought about a greater insight into the ideas and moral values that African artists express in their art.
