AFROFUTURISM MEETS BLACK DIVINITY IN THIS ATL ARTIST’S WORK

A deep believer in spirituality and mysticism, Atlanta-based artist Pea the Feary’s digital artwork aims to explore time and space as well as the Black experience here on earth. In doing so, her work elevates Black identities by honoring subjects with royal and divine imagery. Black creatives wear golden halos in her trippy, dystopian world. Fusing Afrofuturism with glitch craft, each portrait is totally unique and presents a visual exploration of universal possibility and the power each of us possess.
“My goal while I’m in this body is to inspire others to leave the old paradigm of the life that they’re living and dissolve the limits that they’ve created for themselves,” Pea The Feary tells AFROPUNK. “I think we’re at a vital place in human evolution and to move forward the “least of these” must take their rightful place as divine. And for me one of the best ways to inspire is through illustration since I am such a visual creature. There is endless divinity, magic and power in black culture and I really don’t want us to disconnect from that or forget that.”
