ERIC WILKERSON

"The OBA"  Oil on Panel 13" x 17". This is one of a few new paintings from an ongoing personal project.  As an African American artist, Illustrator and Afrofuturist, I'm more interested in depicting the farthest reaches of where we can go rather than paint where we've been.  I'd like to believe that one day the first colonists of another planet will consist of those of African descent. Hopefully there will be room out there among the stars to escape the hate and injustice we've endured for centuries.  I may not live to see it but maybe my daughter will.

The name of the character is Issa Zola de la Fuerte.  She is the 47th and current Oba of a distant star system and leader of New Zion, a city within my artbook project. Her name basically means the strong peaceful Godly one.  I designed the character and her wardrobe to exude strength and confidence.  Her tribal markings and patterning are representative of her ancestors and of her status.  I wanted a name that fit what she visually represents.

 

ERIC WILL PRESENT A SPECIAL ARTIST TECHNIQUE PRESENTATION at ONYXCON. Times are tentative but a Saturday Time in the Schedule is expected.  BE THERE! MEET LEGENDS AT ONYXCON!
