For my next project, I wanted to create my own african mask. I planned on creating a type of mask that is for decoration, but has the option of being worn. The mask would have a type of seriousness to it, making it look very authoritative. This mask would also be closer to the shape of the face, instead of how traditional masks are wider and/or longer than the original face.
I got this idea from african tribal relics that I saw at the Cleveland Museum of Art, traditional african tribal face paint, and concept ideas from the "Black Panther" movie for the villain, Killmonger's mask.
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.
