ART TODAY 041518 Charles Bibbs is in the House! As Artist of the Week + a short video with Synthia SAINT JAMES

I have always said, “that my most important goal as an artist is to make profound aesthetic art statements that are ethnically rooted and at the same time arouse the spiritual emotions in the viewers. I want to tell stories in my art that mirrors the Black Experience, but in a way that is uniquely mine. I want to create an art language that is uniquely ”Bibbs” that will take the viewer on a unique journey into a different experience.” Charles Bibbs
