Last weekend, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I was featured in one of the Honolulu Museum of Art’s “Artist in Studio” stories. Big mahalo, @honolulumuseum!
I will be facilitating the first of two lecture + workshops at the Honolulu Museum of Art, this Saturday from 3 - 6pm. Feel free to join us as we discuss several of the artists (@kehindewiley @kara_walker_official and @kerryjamesmarshs) from the “30 Americans” exhibit...
Great experience at POW! WOW! Hawaii 2020! Big mahalo to the organizers (including @mrjasperwong @kameahadar @pro_gress), to my fellow KS coworkers and students from KSK, and special thanks to my family for their support. Feel free to check out the completed mural at...
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.
Mark’s majestic renditions of beautiful Black people is seeping with regality. His blending of life-like details with surreal surroundings is moving to say the least.
Feijão’s works are at once intensely personal and deeply poignant, while also suggestive of an infinite but manifestable realm of human potential.
