ARTIST BROTHAS!!


ATLANTA BASED ARTIST FAMAHU PECOU (b. 1975) HAS MADE A SPLASH ON THE ART SCENE, CREATING DYNAMIC IMAGES THAT ARE PART SELF PORTRAIT, PART SOCIAL COMMENTARY. HIS WORK IS SECULAR, BUT SPEAKS TO MANY ASPECTS OF AMERICAN LIFE AND ALL THE STEREOTYPES IT (supposedly) SHATTERS. CHECK SOME IMAGES FROM VARIOUS COLLECTIONS AND SEE FIRSTHAND HOW HE USES POPULAR IMAGERY TO HIGHLIGHT TABOOS AND SPARK DISCUSSION.
