Donated to the State Black Archives Research Center & Museum by Velma A. Walker., Donated to the State Black Archives Research Center & Museum by Velma A. Walker., Artist's bio: Aaron Ibn Pitts is a fixture in the Detroit art community, being a lifelong resident except for a brief period during which he lived in Los Angeles and several years of travel in Africa and Europe. As a young aspiring artist he was inspired by time spent in the company of such giants of the Harlem Renaissance as Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence. Pitts studied at Los Angeles City College and earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Wayne State University. His work is intensely socio political. His art fits within a longstanding tradition of autobiography in African American art in which self portraiture is more an expression of the communal self., Digitized by J.F.
