Conversation with Fahamu Pecou

Nov 7th, 2018

Dr. Fahamu Pecou is an American visual artist.

He is a on the board of directors at the High Museum of Art and he’s earned his PHD from Emory University.

Dr. Pecou is one of my favorite artists, and his work examines representations of Black male masculinity. His paintings Incorporate various expressions of “Blackness,” which includes the visual iconography of Yoruba (Ifa) spirituality, the somatic attitude of hip-hop bravado, and philosophy of the négritude movement.

Join us in our conversation about the beginning of his career, intimate details about his childhood and advice for young artists.
