Statement

Blending performance, video, and digital imagery, Kamau Patton has created a body of work that is awesome in its content and spectacular in its execution.  Drawing from Diasporic cultures and African American spiritual practices, Patton's work is a hybrid of anthropology and fiction, personal and social commentary.
