Tarajosu [@Tarajosu] creates Art that centers prominent people of colour as royalty and they’re breathtaking


Revel in these bright pieces made by the fine artist/ graphic designer Tarajosu. He brings photographs to life with his vivid use of colour and his eye-catching afro-futuristic designs. 

With its gold themed, bright background while incorporating people of colour in their glory, it borrows significant cultural notes from Black Panther, which make his work both gripping and pleasing to look at.

This is a commissioned portrait that totaled to 30 hours to complete. . The portrait is of a strong and beautiful woman. @reginicec 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾✊🏾 . Now, I know some of you are critical and I think it’s good to be aware and notice things. But if you see the portrait I created and the original picture you may say ,”colorism?” Or why did I “lighten” her skin tone. If you were able to see her IG you would see her true skin tone which isn’t far off from my version and I chose to show her skin as if light from a low setting sun’s last embrace before the stars reflected unto her face. 🌞⭐️ I bring this up because a friend asked me about colorism and why I seemingly lightened the skin tone on a portrait I did. She asked academically and simply wanted my perspective which I appreciated. Most artists and photographers understand how lighting effects the skin. 🌕🌖🌓🌒🌑🌘🌗🌔
