Before and After ColonialismIllustration // Wednesday, 04 May 2011
Lately, a lot of West African and Nigerian tribal imagery has piqued Stacey Rozich's interest. 'When I picked up "Things Fall Apart" I was really taken by the story of an African Igbo tribe before and after colonialism. The incorporation of spirituality and superstition was fascinating; the figures of their ancestors were portrayed as frightening masked gods with horns and fur, in one case, smoke rising from his head.' Stacey is an illustrator out of Seattle, WA.
