WOMEN OF COURAGE 1 (SixTripleEight US Army WW2) Oiginal Mixed Media on Canvas 24 X 36 (Available in Prints)
This painting celebrates the contributions of American female soldiers to World Peace and American Freedom during WW2. There were more than 6000 black women in the Army during WW2, the Six Triple Eight were the only ones to serve in Europe. By 1946, the remainder of the unit returned to the United States and was disbanded at Fort Dix, New Jersey, without further ceremony. There were no parades, no public appreciation, and no official recognition of their accomplishments.

Tunde Afolayan Famous

Famous, a Nigerian- born artist, is considered one of the most prolific African contemporary artists. Exploring color as the basis of painting, he infuses spiritualism and symbolism in his powerful, lyrical expressions.

His thematic compositions, imbued with vibrant colors, allow figurative images to adopt expressive, abstract qualities as well as representational styles. Famous' color palette, tempered with strong hues, exemplifies his African aesthetics and sensibilities.

Famous' paintings have been exhibited in galleries and museums in Nigeria, Europe and the United States.

I am fascinated with the polychromatic elements laden with poetic fervor.
Exploring the interplay of colors, space, and textures within a visual construct allows me to
create different nuances and evocative personal visual narratives. My creative adventures
continue to evolve as I navigate
through the path of endless possibilities...
