Black Panther x Carolina Panthers

  • Black Panther x Carolina Panthers
  • I teamed up with the Carolina Panthers to create two pieces of art commemorating two current players as characters from Marvel’s Black Panther. I was inspired by the Ta-Nehisi Coates series of Black Panther Comics, the Movie, and the soundtrack to create these pieces of art. Through my artistic aesthetic, I wanted to show that Killmonger and T’Challa were different sides of the same coin. Their dynamic in the film showed the complex nature of African vs. African-American cultural nuance, ideals, and life. I wanted the art to reflect the innate longing for home in your tribe and land as the movie, does as well, whether its Wakanda or Charlotte, NC.
