Tribal Paint

Most of these images are created by the amazing Nigerian brother, Laolu Senbanjo. His work is so dope. Regardless, I love tribal paint. It is commanding and against the grain. It invokes the energy of powerful African warriors, tribeswomen and tribesmen and the creativity and adaptability of Diasporans across the globe. Decorative, intriguing, and downright sexy, tribal paint has been a muse-like turn-on of mine for years. I digitally collect many of these images on Pinterest, but wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the art form – on Nubian Core. -Dubaku
