The Art of Charles Joyner

Charles Joyner can be classified as an artist who portrays images that document various genres of African-American and African culture. His artwork is a transparency of his life growing up in rural North Carolina that has been strongly influenced by his recent travels in West Africa. Joyner's research relating to customs and traditions of African-American communities and those of West Africa have sparked his innate curiosity about their similarities and differences. His most recent body of work has been invigorated by his research in the visual iconography of Ghana, West Africa.
