Carlos Afraka

Carlos is an Atlanta native, born and raised in the southern region of the city. From a young mind in transition to his current self, he’s always had a distinct identity that expresses an artistic light, which sometimes gets tangled with authority or strays far from the crowd. One can only be so expressive until a barrier is found. Rooted from an urban environment where culture and self-identity is a very dominant aspect, he expresses his own identity similar to black leaders of the past with expression of the importance of knowledge of self, understanding spirituality, and maintaining balance in life. His work reflects in many ways, his interests, love of esoteric spirituality, and respect of the current state of black culture. Carlos is a firm believer in love, energy, and spirit, and hopes to open the minds and hearts of as many people as possible with the efforts of his work.
