“I Drink From My Well” Works by: George Crump

George believes the rules of his art discipline must be well understood to be challenged. [He] knows "some rules don't always fit with what [he] has to say." So, he often applies this principle to the strengths of his medium by revealing complementary colors to illustrate each narrative on canvas.

WATERCOLORS: by Emmanuel Owusu Dartey 1991 -1993
Similar to his American counterpart, Lois Mailou Jones, who painted watercolor sketches of her beloved Martha’s Vineyard, Dartey’s paintings presented unobstructed views of the seaside community of his birth and market scenes embodying the ebb and flow of rural life. His work is said to be both ‘stubbornly elusive and transparent' at the same time.

Faié Afrikan Art Gallery in Bronzeville Presents: The Works of Mr. George Crump - “I Drink From My Well”
July 9, 2021 – July 25, 2021

Meet Mr. Crump at Faié Afrikan Art Gallery for an intriguing discussion about his methods and how best to understand the meaning behind The Art.

Opening Night Artist Talk July 9, 2021 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

George Crump the Artist

The Chicago-based artist known as George Crump spent the majority of his life successfully developing a unified body of work evoking conversation between his art and collectors. George’s style is as unique as his signature bald characters who sit at the intersection of reality and surrealism.

George developed his focus on the sensual nature of art, aiming to evoke conversations on canvas. Like many visual artists, George “cannot recall a time when he was not attempting to converse through drawing, coloring or making things that spoke for [him].” It is through these powerful conversations that collectors across the nation are allured to his work.

George believes the rules of his art discipline must be well understood to be challenged. [He] knows "some rules don't always fit with what [he] has to say." So, he often applies this principle to the strengths of his medium by revealing complementary colors to illustrate each narrative on canvas.

Notably, his application is universal and honest. So much so, his strong emotional connection to his paintings open up to a variety of rich interpretations.

Crump Collectors Comments

Patric McCoy, President and Co-Founder of Diasporal Rhythms, Art Activist

“I’ve long recognized the unique talent of George Crump to relay important cultural messages about the Black experience through his paintings; so when the New York Times was interviewing me and asked which artists in my collection I would recommend people look at I said George Crump.”

Shyvette Williams, Artist/Designer
“George Crump is one of the most original painters painting today.”

Max Sansing. Artist/Muralist.
“One of my elders and a master with the brush, His work never fails to impact me. George Crump is a legend in my book. Proud to call him a friend. Check out his work....Outstanding!”

The Benin Bronze plaques and sculptures were used to decorate the Royal Palace of the Kingdom of Benin. A thousand of these pieces were in this spectacular edifice. These pieces were made beginning in the thirteenth century. Most were looted in the late 19th century and are now mostly in museums, particularly the British Museum and other museums in America and throughout Europe

About Faie Afrikan Art

FAIE AFRIKAN ART began in 1995 with a trip to Mali and Guinea in West Africa. The impact and beauty of the art was undeniable. This began a quest to explore the art of the continent. This art is not created 'art for arts' sake'; it speaks of the connections to tradition, family, the ancestors, and the belief in the Omnipresence of the Spirit. On these pages you will share my discovery of beautiful, authentic art made in Africa by traditional craftsmen. You will feel the power and deeper purpose of these pieces. Explore these pages and allow this art force to communicate its' meaning to you.

FAIE AFRIKAN ART showcases outstanding pieces from the Western, Eastern, Central and Southern Regions of Africa. African art continues to evolve with the traditional themes being echoed by modern artists.

FAIE's prupose is to make quality African art, usually found in private collections and museums, available to wider audience, particularly those in the Diaspora, and all who are seeking deeper purpose and unspeakable beauty. Welcome to Faie Afrikan Art.
