"Jimmy Plays In A Funk Band" by Najee Dorsey
4.5" x 2.5" x 3" inches, non-fired clay, paint, paper and bottle caps, on granite base (2019)
I’ve enjoyed a successful career as a mixed media artist whose works are deeply rooted in African-American Southern culture. Recently, i’ve entered a new period that has me working with clay. While I began sculpting in the early 1990s, incorporating works in clay and assemblage of modern and contemporary finds from thrift stores and flea markets became a new muse in December 2015.
Born and raised in the Delta and now a resident of the Columbus area, Najee Dorsey has shown his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions. He has been the recipient of awards that include a 2006 Patrons Purchase Award from the Polk Museum of Art. His work can be found in the collections of Charles H. Wright Museum; Syracuse University; the African American Museum in Dallas, TX; the Marietta Museum of Art, FL; and Liberty Bank and Trust Company in New Orleans, LA. In 2010, Dorsey created the website Black Art in America (BAIA), the leading global social network and resource for African-American visual artists, collectors, industry leaders, and arts enthusiasts.
