My idea was to create a graffiti Royal series. Basically, this was going to be the first of 2 or 4, having a queen, a king, and maybe a prince and princess depending on the time.
All inspired by modern trends, graffiti background styles, and African religious beliefs and/or tradition. For my piece, I wanted her to look like a black version of a Ganesh, which is a Hindu god that has four or more arms. I also wanted every arm pose to work with any of the opposing arms. So like you'll see one arm holding something or doing a pose and the other could be holding their arm out or fixing her hair, whatever. I also made all the tags have something to do with royalty, success, and self acceptance. In graffiti, crowns and heaven halos are used to show status and to pay homage to others. I wanted to use both for this piece to show how big of a deal she truly is.
I made the piece with spray paint for the galaxy background, paint markers for the tags (more to come), and acrylic for the queen. After two more weeks, I was finally able to fully finish this piece. In the end, it turned out exactly how I envisioned it, I love how she never blends into the background, which also makes her seem more celestial and royal in comparison. The bubble letters mixed with normal tags gives more of the art I'm used to; kind of a free for all for who can put up their art more, while still respecting the pieces that are truly amazing.
I'm a Afrofuturistic graffiti king that loves Black culture including the culture we made and the one we were taken from. My art is based on African tradition/religion, modern black trends, traditional graffiti with my own little feel to it, present BS happening in the country/world, and my own feelings and beliefs.
