Rashaad Newsome was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1979. He went to Tulane University and received a BFA in Art history. I addition to this, Newsome also studied digital post-production and programming. Newsome creates art using a variety of mediums, including film, collage, sculpture, and performance.
His work is heavily influenced by pop culture and sends off a deep social message about said pop culture and mainstream ideas. His abstract work is a shout out to Black
The first impression I had of Newsome’s art, was that it reminded me of a kaleidoscope. It seems very scattered at first
Overall his art is very unique and pleasing to look at, and listen to. I look forward to what he has in store for the future.
