“BLACKOLOGY” a collection of portraits and Illustration on Black Icons of the 80’s/90’s Pop-Culture

Digital Painting + Vector Art

In this personal project, I wanted to work on various portraits of black celebrities that are some kind of Icons of the 80’s and 90’s Pop culture. Characters from movies, series, athletes or models… People that made these decades, influenced people and left their mark in our minds and society.
To highlight them, I’ve decided to mix some elements inspired by ” classic religious imagery” but revisited with a “modern & graphic” visual approach and subjects for the characters. I’ve designed some sort of “Stained Glass” patterns/graphics frames and created some kind of “Holy representations” of these celebrities to present them as some kinds of “Pop Culture divinities“.
 Hope you guys will like it, and thanks for taking the time to visit this project!
This collection of illustrations has been created using a mix of digital painting in Adobe photoshop as well as some vector elements created using Adobe illustrator.
