Wes Mapes creates mixed media artworks, paintings, sculptures and installations. He draws inspiration from a vast pool of influences ranging from post-colonial theory, “alternative” history, mathematics, modern architecture and Pan African identity.
Neo Kemetic Assemblage II (NKAII) is a hoodtronic amalgamation of differing media rooted in a shared timeless narrative. The vernacular of this hyper trill work introduces past, present and future through ritual and relic. Illustrated slang, Soul On Ice. A homage to The Town; our people, our beauty, our strength. Our slanguage unadulterated...visually.
Special thanks: My ancestors, whose prayers still bless me. My progeny, whose presence motivates me. All the real ones, thank you. Love.
