by Moses Sun

Artist Moses Sun took inspiration from Romare Bearden, an artist he has admired since the beginning of his career, in the creation of this large-scale mixed media work. Moses blended drawing, painting, and collage across paper and canvas within the same piece, paying homage to some of Bearden's signature techniques as well as to North Carolina, the state where both artists spent their early years.

Material: Mixed media, collage, painting on canvas

Dimensions: 60 x 72 in.  

Seattle based artist and curator Moses Sun creates analog, digital, and mixed media art. Sun draws much of his inspiration from his southern upbringing along with Black, African, Asian, and Latinx diasporas. He blends these influences into abstract meditative constellations of movement expressed on paper, wood, and large-scale murals. Sun describes his art this way, “My work expresses blackness across multiple media platforms, laying bare my personal history, and humanity. I make drawings on paper and iPad, digital and analogue photographs, sculpture, and installations, then sample them and in the hip-hop ethos of 'grinding' output them as murals, relief sculptures, digital prints, video animations, games, and social media apps. I work intuitively, letting go of pretense so that the story reveals to the viewer an entry point, a beginning but never an end.” Sun’s work has been shown in both solo and group shows in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle. 

Note: This large-scale work is available in the Seattle-metro area and cannot be shipped. For further inquires: store@fryemuseum.org
