CHRIS OFILI'S AFRONIRVANA


Chris OfiliAfronirvana (detail) (2002)

Manchester born and Trinidad based painter Chris Ofili takes imagery and inspiration from such disparate, history-spanning sources as the Bible, Hip Hop music, Zimbabwean cave paintings, Blaxploitation films, and the works of William Blake.

I find these particular pieces to be total beauties. His solo exhibition at the NYC New Museum is going on for a few more days.
