About:

My work focuses on the aesthetics and philosophies inherent throughout Africa and the Diaspora. I strive to create a dialogue between contemporary black cultures and the ancient African world. Through visual comparison of shared philosophies and aesthetics ubiquitous amongst black peoples I seek to describe a complex and varied black aesthetic. These visual and philosophical connections and cultural analyses form my visual language. My pieces depict African thought and culture as equal to, yet unique from its western analogue. This work stands in stark contrast to the pervasive negative associations, which have become synonymous with black culture.

I am a Boston painter and Illustrator, who is available for commissions, freelance and concept work. If you are interested in the work you can contact me at stephen.hamilton82@gmail.com. Thank you and enjoy!
