_______________________

Artist Replete presents a rare collaboration by South Side Chicago artists: Arthur J. Williams Jr and Roger J. Carter. This piece depicts a 1978 mugshot of Huey P. Newton. Titled: "Native Son" the artwork is named after a novel written by Richard Wright. The book tells the story of 20 yr old black youth living in a poor area of Chicago's South Side. The author portrays a systemic corruption amongst the prison system. 

 

MORE ABOUT HUEY P. NEWTON: Under Newton's leadership, the Black Panther Party founded over 60 community support programs (renamed survival programs in 1971) including food banks, medical clinics, sickle cell anemia tests, prison busing for families of inmates, legal advice seminars, clothing banks, housing cooperates, and their own ambulance service. The most famous of these programs was the Free Breakfast For Children program, which fed thousands of impoverished children daily during the early 1970s. Newton also co-founded the Black Panther Newspaper Service which became one of America's most widely distributed African-American newspapers.

 

 

During the spring of 2020, South Side, Chicago artist Roger J. Carter formed a new body of work through relentless experimentation. He gradually built a style that spoke to his personal taste and inspired everyone around him. Using toy soldiers, the artist has created captivating portraits of musicians, activists and writers. The soldiers, previously looked at as nothing more than a toy, took on a new meaning, as part of a greater expression.

 

"For me I've always been political in my art. I've always done revolutionary characters and rebels. So in that regard, I consider my art as a form of protest. My Art Is My Protest."
