My Foundations in Art Education include Advertising, illustration, Drawing, Painting and Realism from the Black Arts Traditions
Studio Art is my passion. I create for my satisfaction and for my NYC Bred Culture. I have the full Artists orientation and have had some important showings... still, I have never used my Art as a commodity. I found a way to market my skills and certain aspects of my studio work so that I have 50+ years with Art and Art related experiences as my primary means of support. That is important because to fully develop an Art resource requires much personal research, mentoring, seeing the Great Art Creations and understanding the deeper underlying principles of Ats as a Philosophy or Way of Seeing.
I call my Life timeWork (C) Neo Afro / Afroneo. My BFA Degree in Painting ( Neo Expressionism ) is my only degree.

In African American / Black Art, these principles of Genre have not been invented or developed for what we understand as BLACK ART. So Black "VISUAL" Art is a Genre that is defined as an aspect of Americana Arts and Culture. I began to refine my various themes and descriptions to recognize that I had the makings of a Genre. To be referential...
Neo meaning recent, revised, up dated, modified
Afro meaning of African Origin = Ancestry
(C) Afroneo - the vernacular rhythm = African derived / based language
What is ART?
Foundations of Form / Acrylic & Collage on Stretch Board 2007
Black Art reflects the Black Experience and is usually founded in Portraiture, Realism and or African Motif. Black Art however does not reflect the same sociology of Americana Art Movements specifically because in many cases, Art is seen as a Folkloric pass time...a reflection of self and culture...so it also has a rebel / protest side that reflects the culture. The Notion of
"Self Taught" is also a feature of African American Artists...which reflects the notion of Cultural purity in contrast to the feeling that African Americans are somehow brain washed by education.
Many see the fine Arts world as "The Game". I consider that to be part of a Inner Cultural Pop Narrative. It has a purpose, but the emphasis on Finance is what skewers the reality of Educational Knowledge of the field of Fine Art and Fine Art Business.
You need education in the professional practices of Art and Self Promotion to succeed. I consider myself to be part of the "Progressive" Neo Abstractionist Expressionist Movement because I was operating in NYC as a Street Artist during the rise of
Neo Expressionism. We took all influences and created a new Language of Abstraction.
