Friday Night Flicks: Maya Freelon Asante

Today’s featured paper artist is Maya Freelon Asante. From the text on the Movies on Artists YouTube page:

Bleeding tissue paper bright and brilliant, artist Maya Freelon Asante expands traditional art boundaries and shares her unique mixed-media work around the world. Her unique tissue paper artwork has been described by the International Review of African American Art as “a vibrant, beating assemblage of color.” Her massive tissue paper sculpture Ubuntu is part of the permanent art collection of the US Embassy in Madagascar. She has also exhibited at US Embassies in Italy, Jamaica, Swaziland and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in D.C.
