Check out the surreal work of Californian artist Paul Lewin. The artist (who was born in Jamaica and moved to the US as a child) is recognised for his fusion of science-fiction and  Afro-Caribbean folklore – most of his work featuring ancient masks, tribal motifs, and queenly Black women. Lewin states that he likes to “mix traditional Caribbean and African motifs with surreal visions of nature and the ancestry that surrounds us daily.” Explore his fantastical work, below.
