Space Is The Place (2015)

Aniekan Udofia

Latex and spray paint on wood panels

144” x 168”

This mural by DC muralist Aniekan Udofia was originally inspired by visiting DCAM co-curator/artist Bill Warrell’s studio at the 926 N Street NW, during the planning of the city’s Sun Ra festival. Quickly connecting over similar admiration for the performance artists Sun Ra and Erykah Badu, Udofia became inspired to create a mural that would pay homage to multiple generations of creative inspiration. Armed with pencils, which has become a signature of Udofia’s work, Erykah strongly gazes directly at the viewer while the Artist Sun Ra, an American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer player, poet and philosopher known for his experimental music, "cosmic philosophy," prolific output, and theatrical performances, floats behind her amongst the stars and planets.
