More information about this artwork

Hebru Brantley is an American artist best known for his trademark cast of empowered Afrofuturist superheroes. Drawing inspiration from street art, manga, comic books and pop art, the artist’s young characters reference fictional icons, such as Batman and Mickey Mouse, as well as his personal pop idols, such as Warhol or Basquiat. Dealing with themes of race, nostalgia, ambition, power and hope, Brantley’s heroes place all-powerful figures who represent people of color at the heart of a reinvented and empowering fictional narrative.

Ultra Lumen OG Sculpture is a limited-edition resin sculpture of one of Brantley’s beloved heroes, holding a LED light in an explorative pose. Recurrent throughout the artist’s oeuvre, the character’s oversized pilot goggles reference The Tuskegee Airmen, the first group of African American and Caribbean-born pilots who fought in WWII. Combining moments of reality and fantastical fiction, Brantley creates a ‘fragmented environment of make believe’. His work is collected by celebrities and A-list buyers such as Jay-Z, Beyoncé, LeBron James and Lenny Kravitz.
