This stunning gallery on Blavity showcases eight up-and-coming visual artists influenced by Afrofuturism, science fiction that explores the experiences and culture of people of color. They’re amazingly diverse not just in their sci-fi visions, but the media they use to express them. Painting, comics, illustration, mixed-media collage, even masks—there are endless ways to bring the future to life.
Art allows us to see beyond the boundaries of what’s currently possible. On sites like DeviantArt and Tumblr, artists share their stunning visions for life in space. Let’s take a trip through the wormhole to a future of space stations, colony ships and distant living quarters on dusty planets.
