Akili Mansa Richards is taking the world by storm with his vivid, and often shocking, interpretations of reality. With subjects ranging from love and relationships to hard-hitting social commentary, Richards’ works are sure to touch, inspire and move viewers.

Richards’ goal artistically is for the world to see his art and understand the spiritual, political, and social veins that run throughout his works.
Art is my voice and it is time
for me to be heard by the world.
I want every part of me to be heard.
My tears, when I feel pain in my heart.
My eyes, to show how I see my world.
My heart to show my passion and love.
My ears, to hear the heartbeat of the world.
My emotions are my Art
Art is my love.
