african culture

anonymous asked:

How do you feel about a mixed person who is very light/white passing , raised in a black household embracing African-American culture? Is it's cultural appropriation since their white passing? X

No…they’re black

Worked up this illustration of a couple I saw on the train a few weeks back… I embellished a little on the design; the guy didn’t have this body frame, & neither wore gold, but both carried a powerful sense of Afrikan pride about them, which I loved… People couldn’t take their eyes off them… I loved that too.

Being from a part of Africa not necessarily known by the general public, it is really important for me to represent not just my country and my people, but also the whole African continent through my work. - Yannis Guibinga
