About this Artwork:
I started a project called “BLACKOLOGY“. This illustration is a Portrait of “Jaleel White” know as “Steve Urkel” in the TV show “Family Matters”. This Artwork is a digital painting, drawn and painted on a Wacom Tablet using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
I wanted to highlight and tribute some “Black icons” of the 80’s and 90’s. Each illustration featuring a character. Behind the character, i’ve created a specific “Graphic frame” inspired by the universe of the celebrity/icon. I’m creating some kind of “Holy representations” of these celebrities and present them as some kinds of “Pop Culture divinities“. I’ve created this to work on the evolution of “celebrities” and the way people are “elevating them” to the status of some kind of gods in this new millennium. I’m doing a kind of mirror and was inspired by all the “classic religious imagery” but revisited today with a “modern & graphic” visual approach and subjects.
