    Old painting, new wheatpaste. 

    In 2011, I began a series of paintings called Victim of American Fear.(The title is from this article by Adam Serwer for The Prospect. As an illustrator, I’m often inspired to create a painting from something I’ve read.)

    The series was meant to address the killings of black people that happen when people find themselves afraid of black people just because they are black. Think Trayvon Martin. Think Oscar Grant. 

    Also think Renisha McBride. If I continue this series, I’ll want to include a black woman.  

    After the recent killings of more black bodies, I decided to try these paintings out on the street as wheatpastes. 

    Critiquing my own work, I do think these paintings are a little over-literal, with the gun targets covering the bodies. I don’t mean to be provocative just for the sake of it. But I do think it’s a strong image. 

    These are pasted in Newark. 

    subject matter is grim, but real

    great work

    Gladys ‘Nomfanekiso’ Mgudlandlu (1923 - 1978)

    Gladys Mgundlandlu was born near Peddie, Eastern Cape in 1923 to Mfengu parents.

    A dedicated art school teacher, Mgudlandlu began painting for herself in 1952. But it was her grandmother’s death in 1957 that spurred her on to paint seriously. Mgudlandlu was deeply influenced by her rural childhood and had been taught to paint wall murals by her grandmother. She was a self-taught artist and created her own unique African expressionist style of painting using vivid colours with bold, rhythmic brush-strokes to depict landscapes, people, fauna and flora overlaid by the influence of Xhosa folklore.

    Mgudlandlu worked in a variety of media using watercolour, oil paints, crayon, gouache, ink and felt-tip pens. She painted after her teaching day by the light of a paraffin lamp to create her naïve, dream-like pictures. The name ‘Nomfanekiso’ means ‘she who paints at night’. She has been criticized for not rooting her work in the socio-political protest genre current in the face of the apartheid experience. However, this is to overlook the spiritual and symbolic importance of her work.

    Following the success of her second solo exhibition in 1962, Mgudlandlu said, “I think that I can claim to be the first African woman in the country to hold an exhibition. As far as I know, I am the only African woman who has taken painting seriously. It has become my first love and there is nothing else I want to do.”

This new style’s moniker, “bubblism,” was inspired by children who called his new work “bubble paintings.” The style has been compared to the “pointillism of Seurat.” But Diaz’s work has heartfelt deepness that pointillism lacks. His simple, rural roots come through in his work taking the viewer on a journey back to his homeland.-Shawn Greenleaf

Happy Mother’s Day!!!
