Mumbo Jumbo NYC#2 - Figurative Painting with Blue and Pink Colors

2019

$4,800

About

Francks Deceus’ “Mumbo Jumbo NYC#2” is a 30 x 24 inch acrylic paint, color pencil, and collage painting on canvas. The main colors are pink, blue and yellow. The image is very playful, showing two figures escaping a fire hose. The title “Mumbo Jumbo", is inspired by Ishmael Reed’s book under the same titled, where he attempted to capsulate the complexities of the African American experience. Stylistically Deceus work incorporates many of the aesthetic forms of artists like Norman Lewis and Howarddena Pindell, as well as reverberating some of the artistic strains of his native Haiti. His modernist style combines figurative, abstract, and layered elements and relies heavily on a simplification of form, deliberately limiting the color palette range. Francks F. Deceus was born in Cap-Haitien, Haiti. He moved to NYC when he was nine years old. He currently resides and maintains a studio in Brooklyn, NY. He received a B.A. in sociology from the Long Island University, NY, in 1992. He has studied printmaking at the Bob Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. In February 2008 he was the recipient, of the Samella Lewis Award. Group exhibitions include the Brooklyn Museum, NY; Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora Arts (MOCADA), Brooklyn, NY; The National Civil Rights Museum, Memphis, TN; Gallery M, New York, NY; and Hampton University, Hampton, VA. His work is in private and public collections, including Xavier University, New Orleans, LA, and the Schomburg Center, New York Public Library, NY. His work has been featured in publications such as The International Revue of African-American Art and The Village Voice, as well as being included in " 100 New York Painters ", by Cynthia Maris Dantzic. Raleted Keywords: Playfull, Comics, Mumbo Jumbo, Haitian Artist
