Tho' I created or named the future-primitif style "Rhythmism" in the early 1970s folks luv to assert I was influenced by Sun Ra. Not at all the case! My groove was in over-drive long before I heard anything about Sun Ra. Plus I thought his music, wearing TV antennaes and aluminum foil and wires along with his claims of being from Saturn were super-lame.
Later in the 1990s or so, when a non Black White man comes up with a term to cover a similar style, "Afrofuturism", it becomes the rage.
So was his name Kunta Kente or was it Toby?
HMMMMM? Where is the Kwnazaa in that? I was commisioned by the indie "Roctober" 'zine do a Sun Ra image that is now a trending as a trading card.
I sitll stand for Rhythmism! Being a major market kick ass illustrator......... I am still for hire. So here it is.
But remember, "Rhythmism Lives!"
