Digital Artist David Alabo Is Electrifying The Art Scene With His Afro-Surrealist Work

November 22, 2018

The Ghanaian-Moroccan digital artist David Alabo creates stunning and futuristic worlds that highlight Africa and its diaspora in a remarkable way.

Alabo shines with his surrealist approach in the “Black Panther“ era; his work takes viewers to magical worlds and outer space landscapes. The perfect collision between African culture and mythical worlds will blow us away.

Alabo works and is based in Accra, and basically started on music cover while studying economics, which gave him a lot of opportunities, such as a CNN feature.

Obviously his greatest inspiration came from artists like Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali, and the abstract and surrealist influences are generously visable. Alabo’s affection for East Africa’s Maasai people, North Africa’s Arab influences, and African joyful colors, resonants perfectly with galaxies, moons, and stars.
