Artist and Activist Luther Wright challenges the boundaries of traditional painting as he merges old formal techniques with new modern techniques creating his own genre of art.
Because he is an explorer of the visual Arts, his style is to have no style at all. Luther explores new ways to use color, texture and strives to create interesting compositions within his work.
He draws inspiration from everyday situations, people, social media, the youth, as well as visions from his dream/meditation state.
Luther believes while dreaming/meditating we are able to enter other dimensions/parallel universes and as an artist he has the ability to bring those visions back into this existing plane for others to experience in the form of art.
Art is captured energy and since energy is never lost just transferred Art can be used as an interface for energy.

Mariane Ibrahim is pleased to present a solo exhibition with Raphaël Barontini, The Night of the Purple Moon, marking the gallery’s inaugural presentation with the artist and his first solo gallery show in the United States.
The gallery will be transformed into a Galerie des Illustres, an otherworldly environment with large scale portraits on canvas and flags. Fictional heroes and historical reinterpretations embellish subjects from classical and canonical histories: from the Caribbean, Voodoo and magical deities, to function as a way for formerly enslaved humans to hold on to their African identity, despite the violence of Western colonialism. Barontini illuminates disparities in the visual and cultural history of the French Caribbean, which is rooted in African ancestry, yet virtually saturated with culture of an insular Caribbean.
