"Black Matter" by Nyame Brown

8 x 8 inches, drawing made with dirt from Malcolm X’s birth home in Omaha, hand made , ink on porcelain (2017) -- unframed

Nyame Brown is an artist whose multimedia work explores the intermingling of African-American pop culture and the larger African Diaspora. Brown received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and his MFA from Yale University School of Art in 1997. He is currently a faculty member at the Oakland School of the Arts and has previously held positions at St. Mary's College of California, Notre Dame University, Illinois State University, and The Art Institute of Chicago. He is also the recipient of the Richard Driehaus Foundation Individual Artist Award (1997 & 2002) and the Joan Mitchell Foundation grant (2003). Brown was the Joan Mitchell Center Artist-in-Residence in Spring 2016.

Curator and art critic, Julie Joyce, wrote about his works for the 2006 "Frequency" exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem, stating that Brown "fuses multifarious time zones and cultures much like a DJ" and described Nyame Brown as a 21st-Century Griot for his use of history and mythology in his narrative art.
