‘Continuous Line’ is from Baltimore artist Ernest Shaw Jr. It explores African traditional culture through the context of the African diaspora, with a focus on the United States.
Shaw’s piece will feature acrylic, oil stick, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil and oil pastels.
“My artworks are more reflective of my observations than my words, hopefully,” says Shaw, who will unveil his multi-medium piece in Top of the World Observation Gallery on Feb. 3.READ MORE: Businesses Owners On The Block Protest Proposal To Close Establishments On The Street By 10 P.M.
