Urban Pop Culture Depictions
James Blagden Renders Afro-Centric Pictures with Trippy Colors

These James Blagden illustrations may induce a few smirks, but many of these polychromatic renderings actually use humor as a way to comment on taboo issues in society.

For instance, one image depicts two men about to kiss one another with onlookers completely in shock. His hyperbolic conveyance of the bystanders is an obvious quip about how worked up people get over homosexuality in society. Other images, such as the ones depicting a man sandwiched between two well-endowed dancers and an African-American man about to be beat down by Caucasian movie stars, also work as satires in trying to tackle afro-centric issues.

Aside from social commentary, James Blagden’s art is also noteworthy for his use of psychedelic colors, with some images using nearly all the colors of the visible spectrum.
