MARCUS MOSIAH GARVEY
1987 was the hundredth year since the birth of one of the most important men of the past century, devoted to the unification & liberation of Africans.
As part of the international celebrations happening around the world. OBAALA held an exhibition at The Black Art Gallery in Finsbury Park, London.
The exhibition featured many artist works in 2D, 3D, film, poetry, music & literature. This Portrait & Triptych was created for "OBAALA's Marcus Garvey Centenary Show".
