When it comes to finding the perfect way to elevate any room, the right piece of art can have a big impact on things. And often, finding that one artist who speaks to you is the key to doing just that. Plenty of modern art superstars are out there, but one who creates amazing fine art that will match the sensibilities of many is Hebru Brantley. Born in Chicago, Hebru Brantley has quickly forged a reputation as being one of the most exciting artists working in the Afro Futurist style of art, and much of his work exemplifies that perfectly.
Brantley grew up in Bronzeville, and has been influenced by the Chicago Black Arts Movement. His primary character that is so well-known, titled ‘FlyBoy’, was inspired by the famous Tuskegee Airmen Fighter pilots who flew many combat missions during World War 2. Now, his work combines pop culture with unique styles that are reminiscent of the late 30s and 40s cartoon characters.
Some examples of Brantley’s work that showcase his style include the following options. Taking a look at them can give you an idea of just what to expect from his work.
• Flynamic Duo Laser – Batman, Robin, and a vintage style that is all its own. This work of fine art takes the two characters and places them in front of a laser style background that fits into any room.
• The First Appearance – Wolverine has become one of the most popular and iconic characters in history, and this print showcases his first appearance with the original costume.
• Dr. Strange Papa Midnight – Combining the Marvel Character Dr. Strange with an afro sensibility, this print is the best of both worlds and a perfect example of Hebru’s style.
• The Mysterious Myth of the Boy Spider – Spider-Man combined with an afro style and a boy instead of a teenager, this print is one of Brantley’s newest works and something that is perfectly able to fit into any home or business.
In short, Hebru Brantley blends afro-futurism, pop culture, vintage sensibilities, and more. All of these elements combine to create fun, interesting creations that will blend into any home or business and look amazing. In fact, his work has been purchased by celebrities like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and it’s easier than ever to add a piece of his work to your own collection.
