In this store we feature vintage historical, early 20th century, and contemporary visual artists of the black American community (aka African Americans). African American art is produced in America with influence of a number of cultural traditions that include Africa, the Americas and Europe. All types of artwork are welcomed here, from folk art to fine art, trained artists and self-taught, work from specific periods (e.g. the Harlem Renaissance) and activist artist collectives that kept the vital work of Black Artists alive (e.g. The Highwaymen) when the mainstream art world arbitrarily chose to exclude us to the detriment of American arts in general, illustrators and drawing artists to mixed media. Black Fam Creations was started almost by accident. We happened to be looking to see if an exhibition of art was online and we found our way to the Library of Congress catalog of prints and photographs online.We also began to research scholarship on black writers and artists and black depictions in literature from the early 20th century and before (and discovered rare gems).We then take the images we find, sometimes scanning old out of print books ourselves to digitize art. Then, we clean it up, removing scratches and dirt, correcting rotation, enhancing color, cropping, sometimes making additions, and choose products that will highlight the inherent beauty of these priceless remnants of our past. Zazzle is our fulfillment channel.We hope you enjoy our store and stay connected!
