Artist Talk with Milton 510 Bowens

Milton Bowens, born and raised in Oakland, CA, is the 5th son and 10th child of his family, which makes for his unique artistic signature Milton 510. His work, which takes inspiration from Artistic Masters, American, World and Black History, bringing to the foreground issues of perseverance, pride, perspective, and affect. 

Bowens states, "Storytelling is essential to my artistic practice, as evidenced by use of incorporating text and historical images; historically stereotypical images, Civil Rights and Black Power Icons, contemporary hip hop songs, as well as pop culture references. Using a visual inspirational approach derived from the Pop Art Masters, Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat. Color rich and textured backgrounds are embellished with vintage printed passages, found objects, handmade papers and magazine clippings, engaging the viewer on multiple levels at the same time and hopefully spurring an interest in the works narrative subject and creating a curiosity to examine the information embedded within the work."
