Blitz Bazawule’s Los Angeles Art Exhibit Is a Must-See… For a Limited Time Only!


Blitz adds art curation to his toolkit.

The man with many talents adds another skill to his toolkit.

Samuel “Blitz” Bazawule is a man who wears many hats: director of films like Beyoncé’s Black Is King and last year’s The Color Purple, vocalist who’s recorded with the likes of Nas, and now, visionary behind his own art installation. 

On Saturday (June 15), Blitz launched Those Were the Days, a personal solo exhibition that delves into this upbringing in Accra, Ghana. Through paintings, the series explores the euphoria of the country’s post-colonial independence, which began in the late 1950s. The exhibit is being hosted at Sekrit Studios in Downtown Los Angeles through July 13. Get into this Motherland-inspired greatness.
