Ms. Tanksley’s paintings are described as “ebullient and fascinating. An experienced technician and a deeply intuitive artist, she is able to manipulate the viewers’ emotion and convey the intended message by adopting the appropriate visual language for the idea she wishes to express.” -[Biography]-

Greeting’s art enthusiasts, I’m elated on this occasion to share with you a marvelous piece of art that captures the noble and expressive imagery of jazz pianist Oscar Peterson like no other by Grambling State University grad Cbabi Bayoc.

The Bayoc studio is comprised of two individuals: Cbabi (pronounced KUH-BOBBY) and Reine (pronounced RAIN) Bayoc. Just as their logo implies, they’ve got each other’s back. But who are they. —

Hi everyone, it’s a pleasure to be with you once again to showcase the finest “Black Art” available by some of the truly gifted and talented artists on the scene. I’ll kick off “Black History Month” with a upcoming artist named Kerream Jones. Enjoy!

“The hunger of the self-described visual griot is evident in the sensual depths of Kerream Jones’ paintings, the relentless drive of his business ventures, and in his appreciation for all things creative, expressive, and true. Since beginning his journey toward artistic excellence as a high school student, Kerream has gone on to create some of the most definitive and distinctive work to emerge out of the modern era of fine art.” —Grandpasart
