Rastafari Art Expansion!

The life of an artist is beyond fun or happy, it is a quest for passions grip and the balance of tangible and intangible. We are creating nothing and yet able to give glimpses of ideas and visions about anything. It is one that is a lifestyle and also a journey of truth. Being real, understanding that what We as artists try to express is our deepest inspirations not visual illusions. How that is understood, in large part is up to the artist to craft skills in story telling through images and colors with purpose.

It is long over due, and yet right on time..The expansion has begun. I will be uploading and sharing more art, as well as reasonings on what is the mission of the paintings, and joyful prayers on canvases. The amount of art that I have is getting organized, cleaned up and will be more available than ever. For right now, on the Shop section, you will see “Prints”. I will be uploading new color and black and white prints, as well as feature new original work for sale. We have lots of projects for the future that will help others economically as well as get the Mighty Message of Rastafari through paintings and culture to wider audiences. For right now this is the start. More art, more readily available. These are some of the new pieces uploaded and ready to ship. Jah Bless. More Works to do.

Why the Father Haile Selassie and The Son Yeshua (Jesus) are One.

Emperor Haile Selassie I

Emperor Haile Selassie I

Blessed Love ONE and ALL. Got a great question from my elder  Abba Ras Anebana Tafari asking why worship Jesus, Yeshua the Messiah when He said in John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, He gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.” Mystically in all that I have learned I look to His Imperial Majesty for Guidance. Through H.I.M. I have seen Humility, one who likewise did not directly tell people to worship H.I.M. It is good to have some knowledge of the Emperor before reading this article.

Here is the insight, When the Burning Bush appeared to Moses in Exodus 3:2 The Bush is described as an Angel of the Lord. Before it is revealed that the Bush in Exodus 14 “And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.” going further that it is clear the voice is the voice of God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. My point here is that When Moses first met God, He appeared as a bush, then He was seen as an angel, and lastly told that He is “I am that I am” God. In the story of Jacob wrestling God, first It was simply a man in the night, then this man was an Angel and then it appeared to be God.

When we get to Revelations 19:10, Where we see John fall to feet of an Angel, who says see that you do not do that, I am your bredren. He says I have the testimony of Jesus Christ and that Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy,.The point is that there is a Trinity at work, from Genesis to Revelations where The Spirit of Prophecy is always present. That is Yeshua, the Spirit of Prophecy. To Bring to HIM who sits on the White Horse Haile Selassie I. He who makes War and judges the nations..see how He walks into League of Nations and Brings down the temple and rebuilds it as the UN. Or that He did the same for the Ark of the Covenant in Axum! My Lord. Do you see that His Word is Faithful and True, wearing many Crowns. Was He not baptized and crowned by the Testimony of Jesus Christ through the Men of Prophecy. Are we not men of prophecy?! Is He not the Fulfillment of Prophecy all over..The Fullfilment of the Son and the Father, and Holy Spirit as One God..and told the Church how things were to be..told the Earth as it must be..as humble as both Men are, they commanded the Church and it was done..also the World..This gets deeper, because who will Love God and Man..Who will see God in Man, and Be as the Spirit or Breath of Life.

John: 8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that He is your God” When that in Mind, listen carefully to prophecy and what His Imperial Majesty says. Look at what we stand for, THE END OF ROMAN COLONIAL RULE THAT LEAVES MEN AS Spiritual and literal SLAVES. The title “Emperor”, or Earth’s Rightful Ruler, or Root of David, already infers DIVINE RIGHT..and its not just a title.. It is the reminder that He doesn’t have to say it, it has been shown and said. Haile Selassie I is the King of Kings…why..beyond location and titles..because He is the evidence that the Son is in the Father and Father in the Son. For Both are True and Trustworthy. They are the way, because it is ONE. It because of True, of REALITY, because He Is-Real, not just Faith, the Defender and Evidence of Faith and things not seen..of Prophecy. This is why Ones worship Jesus Christ, because He reached the place of Ascension to Jah. Haile Selassie descended to Us.He bowed to the Love of humanity.

Lastly, “Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.” In 1936 His Majesty also went to Jerusalem to where Christ ascended and it was the front page of the NY Times..Why.. To acknowledge that The King Judah, remnants of Israel, That the Highest Himself, welcomes Christ in through Conquering Death..Which Ethiopia and the World were doing..Lord of Mercy..Dying..to be resurrected and Ascend which happened. Praises to God The Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. One God. Power and Virtue of the Trinity.HIM The Conquering Lion of Judah, The Light of the World, Emperor Haile Selassie I.

New Painting! ” Jah’s Umbrella “

What a Joyful Meditation it is to think of Emperor Haile Selassie I. This painting spoke to who His Imperial Majesty is to INI, because it is of HIM alone holding His Royal Umbrella. In a Fatherly walk He approaches, where the Heaven and Earth are indistinguishable. Water and Rain everywhere and it looks at first He walks on water, which we all do when He rains.

The Umbrella is special for many reasons, including it represents the Heavens protection and His Imperial Position, usually a Head of State and certainly the Emperor has a trusted one hold his Umbrella, and this was a rare photo that was used. The Rasta-Man aka Priest and Prophet, ( the trusted ones)  holds the umbrella as do they crown the King, for no King can Crown Himself.  This Great King, can carry His Own Umbrella, He is all of Man’s history and future walking towards you. An Emperor who doesn’t believe in classism, and is joyful carrying the weight as Earth’s Rightful Ruler.  Walking in way that reminds I of any good father, with the confidence that He was sent to help Us weather the storm. Thank You Jah for watching out for us, and walking with us, as One of Us.

“Jah’s Umbrella.” Acrylic and Indian Ink.

“Emerald Glow.” Haile Selassie I Light.

Give thanks for the Emerald Judah King, For the Guidance and Mercy of the Emperor. This piece is inspired by His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I and His ability to resonate a Power that is so Strong and Humble. The Feeling of Life itself inhaling. The Color of the Rock of Judah is Green, and often you will see InI paint Green as the Aura of the Palace or His Throne. Judah Emerald. The Cross symbolism is to remind ones of the Prophecy of Christ’s Kingdom which is seen through the Line of David. The Conquering Lion is wearing His signature cape as He warned the World of Fascism and WW2 to come as well as the solution being collective security. The Painting is based on a photo taken in 1936 in Geneva, with an influence of Orthodox Coptic Christian Art.

(20”x 24″) Mixed Media.  Spray paint, acrylic and Indian ink.

As I was painting I decided to stop here because His Imperial Majesties face reminded I of His Father in flesh, Ras Makonnen Wolde Mikael. Sometimes when painting someone you can tap into the ancestors and something comes out, grandma, sometimes our children. I said I hope you can see Ras Makonnen, left it there and put the brush down.
The original is for sale and as well signed prints. The piece is also available for use, so let me know if you need an album cover. Prints are 25.00 plus shipping, email or inbox InI. Just one of the many painting cover to Denver this Sept. 10th Ethiopian New Year show. At The BaseCamp on Sunday!
