Description

From a new series by Kadir Nelson called "The African-American" series, the artist pays homage to the African men and women cast into slavery bringing with them age-old African traditions and wisdom passed down from generation to generation. Here, the age old ritual of snapping green beans and readying them for last meal of the day is demonstrated by a woman proudly sitting on the front steps of her humble whitewashed home, snapping freshly washed green beans into a basket made of sweetgrass and palmetto.

Limited Edition Lithograph on 120lb Acid Free Stock. Only Artist Proofs available. Remarques and standard Limited Editions are sold out.

Kadir Nelson
Kadir Nelson began drawing at the age of three, displaying artistic acumen before he could write or spell. “I have always been an artist,” Nelson explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” At age eleven, Kadir Nelson was apprenticed by his uncle Michael Morris, an artist and art instructor. “My uncle gave me my foundation in art,” says the artist. Kadir Nelson experimented with several different media and later began painting in oils at the age of sixteen under the encouragement and tutelage of both his uncle and high school art teacher. He began entering his paintings in art competitions and ultimately won an art scholarship to study at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Upon graduating with honors, Kadir Nelson began his professional career as an artist, publishing his work and receiving commissions from publishers and production studios such as Dreamworks, Sports Illustrated, Coca-Cola, The New York Times and Major League Baseball, among others.
