From "Fountain of Youth" by Shabazz Larkin.

Shabazz Larkin is an American artist, painter, writer, illustrator, book-maker and product designer. He has worked as an art director for many creative advertising agencies, working with many of the world’s largest brands from Pepsi to Sean Combs, and helped Barack Obama launch the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, his first initiative after leaving the White House.

Larkin lives in Nashville, TN, where he has become a rising voice in the fine art world. He paints portraits of black people in stark black or red skin, a rebellion against Eurocentric notions of beauty, and is best known for his desire to capture the beauty of resilience in black culture. His technique of vandalizing photographs, overwhelming use of colour and bold typography veils his true intention to explore issues of race, justice and spirituality.

Larkin’s many projects and interests include the God Speaks Project, which documents accounts of normal people’s encounters with God, which he’s begun writing on oversized paper and placing them around Nashville, TN., He is also the founder of Larkin Art & Company, creating a line of creative products that bridge the mindfulness gap for Black, Indigenous and People of Color, like children's books with black protagonists, a family game that celebrates the intersection of African and American culture, and self-care tools that leverage black culture. His books have environmental themes and include Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table (2013) and The Thing About Bees (2019).
