Milligan’s work demostrates the formation of identity through influences of history, contemporary society and being, and through spirituality and imagination. His renderings of almost god-like figures suggest dominion over the body and the self.

Artist Mark “Feijão” Milligan II brings to life the history of the African Diaspora. From the travels of the Moors through Spain to the mythos of the people of West Africa, his paintings chronicle the spirit of a people dispersed across the world, gifting each temporary home with their voice and stories.
