A Living History: The Art of Mark “Feijão” Milligan II

 

Artist Mark “Feijão” Milligan II brings to life the history of the African Diaspora. From the travels of the Moors through Spain to the mythos of the people of West Africa, his paintings chronicle the spirit of a people dispersed across the world, gifting each temporary home with their voice and stories.

Milligan’s portrayals capture his subjects in moments of clarity, alive in the moment — queens, saints, heroes, and protectors of the people. He imbues the figures with life, each canvas a living history.
