“This is my interpretation of an elegant Black female performer”

Charles Bibbs technique and style can be distinguished from most artists, by the way in which he combines layers of acrylic paints and inks to obtain rich undertones of line textures. In his effort to support the arts and other artists, including young and emerging artists, Bibbs has given lectures and conducted workshops all over the United States and a few abroad, including an online Skype artist talk he presented to the Society of Nigerian Artists of Nigeria, Lagos in 2014.

TribeLA Magazine: Give yourself and your work a Tagline and tell us why.
Charles Bibbs: My goal as an artist is to make profound artistic statements that are ethnically rooted and  arouse spiritual emotions in the viewers.

TLA Magazine: How do you spend your time off?
Charles Bibbs: I like to get my hands dirty.  Working in the yard brings me a peace of mind. In some cases I will do this prior to settling down to create. My wife and I like to go to unique places to eat or to socialize with friends and relatives.

TLA Magazine: How do you hope to affect your audience?
Charles Bibbs: I want to tell stories with my art that mirrors the African American experience in a way that is uniquely mine.
