At the Tubman Museum's Afro Futurism exhibition ONLI STUDIOS' images were tastefully situated near those of Marvel Comics' and Big City's. Marvel's character defended his Kingdom, Big City's a city while ONLI STUDIOS'
NOG defends an entire planet. Quite the syllogism.
It was great to see my work along with all of the important visual art work in this vibrant exhibition. Just as tough-love is still love, graphic-novel art is still art! Rhythmism has been waiting a long time for this....
The Afro Futurism exhibition was the perfect setting for my Rhythmistic Nubic hero, "NOG: The Protector of the Pyramides" of Planet NUBA.

I recently visited the Primitive Gallery in Chicago for a musical/spiritual event to benefit His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama featuring a presentation of "Compassion" by the Musicians of Millenia Music. I roamed about the gallery and took in the creative embrace from the ancestors
to add direct presence to my growing creative thesis of contemporary Future-Primitif art.......or Rhythmism.

While this display set the garments in a tasteful yet out of context presentation I thought I would mimic the pose to share in the choreography. Being briefly at one with them. The esthetic power in that gallery travels from flow to glow....art item to artifact.....garment to statue. Image to impression. From the past to the present. Future-primitif.
