Artist Statement:

Blue Sea, Vibrant cloth was inspired by African cloth/fabric, it is about the beautiful. I wanted to create a piece that wasn’t just a representation of cloth but showed the richness and beauty it possesses and a culture behind it. When you look around the world even in circumstances that aren’t ideal there is a sense of beauty through fabrics that contrast sometimes harsh realities.


Tenjin Ikeda is an Afro-Puerto Rican Artist born in Brooklyn, New York, on October 30, 1968. He attended the School of Visual Arts in New York first focusing on graphic design and, ultimately, fine arts, where he felt more freedom to express himself. At the Arts Student League, he discovered printmaking, which has been his focus for the past 22 years working in relief. He has various works in private collections and acquisitions by The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, The Print Club of Albany, and The Art Student’s League. In addition, he has been in Modern Printmaking, a book of 30 contemporary printmakers by Sylvie Covey.
