"I'M (a) moTHa+fUcken aRT-iSt"

Joquz website highlights works by Arnold Butler aka i'M (a) moTHa+ fUcken aRT-iSt in the article here. For Arnold Butler's art site, go to "i'M (a) moTha+fUcken aRT-iSt". Arnold Butler, from Atlanta, Georgia portraits mostly women in his paintings. The paintings are Cubist style portraits. The multi-colored dots in the paintings appear to be dread locks on the characters. Which would make sense if Butler paints subjects he also photographs. In many of Butler's photographs, he portraits Black women with long braided hair, or dread locks.

Below I have provided some of Arnold Butler's paintings...
