Charles Bibbs' artwork fuses African, African
American and Native American cultural themes, to make powerful cross cultural statements.
His renderings convey a deep sense of spirituality, majesty, dignity, strength and
grace. Bibbs has always believed that "We are the keepers of our culture",
and as such, has spent much of his time working towards developing a cohesive, energized
African American Community. Born in Harbor City, California, Charles first expressed
himself artistically in elementary school. He credits his parents with recognizing
and encouraging him to develop his talents. He is also an entrepreneur and philanthropist
who resides in Southern California. His work is thought provoking and capable of
arousing strong emotions regardless of ethnic, gender and generational affiliation.
Although he may have an idea or vision in mind when painting a particular piece,
Charles prefers each individual who views his work to gain a personal vision from
his artwork. It is sufficient to say, however his works are viewed, whatever individual
emotions they may evoke, they remain characteristically and recognizably Bibbs. His
works have been collected and displayed in museums and private collections around
