Black Jesus – Print

“Black Jesus” Print on Canvas: This is a high-resolution digital print on canvas from an original oil painting that depicts Jesus Christ as an black man, in a rural countryside, with his humble audience of believers.

Most people are prone to see Jesus as white, but if Christ were to appear as the answer to the questions many black people are asking today, what would he look like? The challenges of sickness, poverty, death, slavery, oppression, subjugation, exploitation, and dehumanizing circumstances under oppressing colonial powers are the contexts in which Jesus reveals himself to Black people. By making this representation of Jesus as a black man, the artist creates a cultural narrative that connects with their community while validating that Christ is a universal savior who can be studied without being limited by national boundaries.
