Harriet Tubman Relief Art
We all have different taste in art. Some people like traditional art in their homes, while others prefer more contemporary pieces. One style of art that touches the heart of African Americans are those pieces that speak of our shared history in this country.
At African American Expressions, we’re proud to offer a gorgeous piece by well-known Black artist D.D. Ike. He has created an emotional and touching homage to Harriet Tubman and her work on the Underground Railroad. This large wall relief art piece is dramatic and touching, as it shows the pain and suffering but also the hope and love that Harriet Tubman experienced as she worked tirelessly to free slaves.
An African American Legend
Harriet Tubman is a true African American Legend. Born into slavery in the south in the early 1800s, Harriet Tubman decided early on that she wasn’t going to spend her life as a slave to others. She managed to escape from her chains and dedicated her life to helping others do the same.
Instrumental on the Underground Railroad, the well-organized network of people and transportation that helped countless slaves break away from their captors and discover true freedom, Tubman would return to the south time and time again despite the risk of being recaptured.
D.D. Ike took inspiration from this amazing woman in creating his relief art. This piece is a mix of darkness and colors, shadows and light, and the result is a powerful mix of emotions. You can see the tense faces of the characters as they follow the courageous Tubman, but you can also imagine the hope and excitement they felt as she led them on toward the freedom they deserved.
