Aug 19, 2020

Oakland painter Paul Lewin brought his own touch to Afrofuturism. His work is inspired by nature, Afro-Caribbean culture, folklore and science fiction. Paul’s pieces have graced the covers of books by sci-fi greats Octavia Butler and N.K. Jemisin.

"I'm creating images of things that I've always wanted to see. Different stories that contain my history, representations of me and my culture."
