“My work screams African culture and beauty, both in photography and digital art. I started doing Afro-futurism to show the world the Africa I dream of every single day. My work juxtaposes reality with surrealism to explore my dream of a better Africa.
In its purest form, my Afro-futurism draws inspiration from the streets, bringing forth an art form that embodies the life, aura and adamantly the chaos that comes with being African.
The streets inspire my work because on the streets you see life, pain, suffering, hard work and even chaos. But it is a beautiful chaos I see. On this artistic odyssey, I seek to use my dreams for a better Africa as the foundation to create, innovate and inspire.” – Agaba Solomon Peabo
