Masters Among Us Aminah Robinson

Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson was born in Columbus, Ohio, in 1940.

When she was a little girl, her father taught her how to draw and how to make books from homemade paper and "hogmawg," a mixture of mud, clay, twigs, leaves, lime, animal grease, and glue. The artist uses hogmawg in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional work. Her mother taught her weaving, needlework, and button work.

From a very young…

" Art"


     As I stroll my feet through the white sandy beach I get a sense of freedom and heavenly blue freah air, I believe as an Artist I have to exscape the harsh realities of the stressful streets and hood from which I came, I'm fortunate enough to travel outside the United States at times and know the world have corners that are serene and peaceful.  I love being original and authentic in directing a painting to what I feel is a huge market of…

Bloomberg Businessweek Magazine "Black Art Is Buried Treasure"

For art collector John Axelrod, the epiphany came a dozen years ago at a New York gallery show of works by African Americans. The Boston lawyer, now retired, was stunned. "My feeling was, these are not African American artists, these are great artists from the country and period I collect in, and I don't know about them." Today about 90 of the 320 pieces he owns are by African Americans.

That, in a nutshell, is what many black collectors think will happen as more white collectors…

Occupying Wall Street - Accra Shepp

On September 30th, 2011 I went to Zuccotti Park to investigate the protest that began on the 17th. I was immediately impressed with the energy and the dedication of the participants. The sense that the protest had the potential to be historically significant was overwhelming.

I made an immediate decision to record the protest. I did not have the luxury of waiting to see if the protest would…

The (Slow but Steady) Integration of the Art World


As many people are aware, the world is not entirely fair to artists, and it is even less so to artists who are African-American. Relatively few art galleries and museums in the United States show the work of African-American artists, creating a problem of invisibility that suggests black artists and their work do not exist.

Some galleries have opened their doors to nonwhite artists, but only a little. "I've heard gallery owners say, 'He's my black artist,' as though…

Lee J. Nixon - Artist

Why I Paint

I have a fascination with colors, patterns, and textures. Colors are utilized to establish a mood, symbolize feelings, and convey ideas. Likewise, textural surfaces are employed to form patterns that will enhance the aesthetical experience of the viewer.

I work primarily in acrylics for their versatility as they can be thinned with water and mediums for transparencies as well as applied in an impasto style for textural surfaces. Sometimes tissue paper…

Philosophy of an Artist Self

An artist is one who makes or creates. Yet, all artists create from what is created. Therefore, my favorite Artist is Allah (One God).

As an artist and educator, I find the beauty in the theory and practice of artists who understand art making as the endowed power of human expression. The creation is filled with instructing signs in which every artist find his/her story, be it formal, narrative, or…
