Makeba Kedem-DuBose, a self-taught artist, grew up in what she likes to refer to as a “female tribe”, on the West Side of Chicago.

She is a product of the Catholic Church and school system and, under the direction of a Jesuit priest, himself an artist, she developed her passion for painting. He taught her the basics of art, art history and various techniques. Makeba’s painting style reflects the mentor’s influence, African based ancestral practices from her maternal Grandmother and the Judeo-Mystic practices of spirituality from her Father. Her work speaks to her viewers on a spiritual level.

Makeba’s mission is to pull viewers in and assist them in moving beyond the individual, thus enabling them to recognize themselves as a portion of her vision of oneness. Her technique of defining shapes with heavy black lines around spaces with intense color lends excitement to her art. She views her art as a tool to assist in connecting the human race for the ultimate purpose of peace.
