The artists of Luanda’s Olindomar Studio, run by cartoonist brothers Olímpio and Lindomar de Sousa, have “re-imagined” certain classic scenes from American History, in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy. The Angola Field Group invites you to an evening of Angolan Art and American History, at 8:00 PM at the Viking Club, this Thursday June 28. David Brooks, Deputy Chief of Mission of the US Embassy and a comic book aficionado, will make a presentation using the works of Olindomar Studio to show how diplomatic missions and other entities can work productively with Angolan artists. There will be a slide presentation and discussion of key themes in the art produced as well as a display of the original creations. David Brooks has a PhD in Latin American History and is a dedicated comic book collector. 

Angolan comic book artists are invited to display and sell their works at this special art evening.
