Behind the Art: Can We Get Much Higher

Behind​ the Art: "Can We Get Much Higher" 

The other night I found myself revisiting the Kanye West album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". This is easily not only one of my favorite Kanye albums but favorite albums period. The intro song "Dark Fantasy" the chorus askes "Can we get much higher?"

One of the reasons I love this album is because of the relationship Kanye has with the Phoenix. The Phoenix representing love, inspiration, art and so forth.

With this piece I wanted to touched on the idea of someone being lifted high from those things, literally in the clouds and just wonder to himself, can we get much higher than where we are?

I also used this piece to pay tribute to The Orisha, Oshun. Using the colors more associated with her on her side and give her skirt a color pattern similar to a bee.

 I also used different shades of brown on her skin to promote the beauty and power of being black.
