My name is Andie Jairam and i am a professional drawer and printmaker from Jonesboro, Georgia. African American artists Sanford Greene, John Jennings and Jack Kirby inspired me growing up. When I was accepted into Morehouse College, I began to research and create images of a world where slavery had not existed in Africa. This concept is known as Afrofuturism. Afrofuturism is a cultural aesthetic that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction and Afrocentricity to critique and reexamine the past to recreate a technological future.
