Statement

Josh Sessoms is a contemporary artist focusing on figures that encapsulate the mystery, dynamism and poetic nature of the African diaspora. Exemplification of grace, dignity, love and power is a starting point from which he begins his artistic musings. Sessoms uses the ethereal nature of imagery to infuse thematic and historical narratives with the realm of collective consciousness. Throughout his work references to ancient African mythology, spirituality, philosophy and science are found.

His primary artistic objective is to inspire those within the African diaspora to revive their collective memories of divinity, royalty and cultural ingenuity. Through his imagery he aspires to forge a bond with the viewer while illuminating the physicality, humanity and universal essence of his creations.
