Embrace by Doyle
The featured art print for this week is Embrace by Doyle. This print is available in our Black Love Art Collection. Below you will find some biographical information on Doyle in the artist own words…
I am a native of Chicago, Illinois’ west side and have been a resident of Atlanta, Georgia for 20 years. I studied at the Atlanta College of Art and the American College of Art and work in oil, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, airbrush,clay sculpting and ceramics. I have exhibited my art at LV Gallery, The National Black Arts Festival and I have been the poster artist for the MOJA festival in Charleston, South Carolina for the past three years. I have received awards from the Fulton County Art Program, the Fel-pro art Award, and the Forest Park Township Art Award. I find inspiration in my family roots. One of my notable works, ”The Sunflower Sista” was inspired by an 92-year-old photograph of my grandmother standing in a field of sunflowers as a child. In my work, I capture reflections of urban life and afro-centricity with a distinguished style and a broad range of images. By exploring my creativity, I have developed a unique style of abstractions with tremendous depth and presence. The ‘Art of Doyle’ is essentially a culmination style, grace, and soul.
