Memes - seemingly innocuous photos of everyday people or celebrities, into their own coded language, like public inside jokes that are shared widely through Twitter, Facebook, and beyond. Wilmington, Del artist Alim Smith (@Yesterdaynite) has turned them into works of art. Do you recognize your favorite ones? #art #memes #africanamericanart #Delaware Read more about the artist:

Thrilled to get my hands on @doctorkelliejones 's new book "South of Pico," thanks to Ken Wissoker, editorial director at Duke University Press, a press that's on the pulse, as demonstrated by Christina Sharpe's book as well! @kwiss #dukeuniversitypress #losangelesartists #blackart #africanamericanart #christinasharpe

#MaryTSmith. Untitled, ca. 1986-88. Enamel paint on wood panel. 33" x 24". *****************************
Mary Tillman Smith (1904-1995) was a self-taught artist who lived and worked in Mississippi. Smith was the daughter of sharecroppers and only attended school until the fifth grade. She worked menial jobs until retirement in the 1970s and started painting with materials available to her, creating a sophisticated visual language that is both personal and archetypal.
Smith stopped making art in the 1990s, after suffering a stroke that affected her writing and speech. Even though her work has been widely shown and collected by major museums, she is still, in my opinion, one of the greatly under-appreciated masters of the #SelfTaughtArt and #OutsiderArt arenas.

#NellieMaeRowe. Untitled, 1981. #WaxCrayon and pencil on paper. 37" x 36".
Nellie Mae Rowe (1900-1982) had an instinctive understanding of the relationship between color and form. She used crayons and acrylics to create boldly chromatic backgrounds for images of animals and county scenes. All the elements of her paintings find their space in the same plane--where color creates rhythm and depth.
Rowe began drawing at an early age. From her mother (the wife of a farmer and blacksmith in rural Fayette Country, Georgia), she learned how to make voodoo-like dolls and sculpted heads, as well as quilts, wood sculptures, and other decorative objects. In her early 60s, Rowe began a creative outpouring. She once remarked: "drawing is the only thing I think is good for the Lord. When I wake up in glory, I want to hear 'well done, Nellie, well done.'"-Adapted from @riccomaresca's book "American Self-Taught" (Alfred A. Knopf, 1993).

Sanu Da Zuwa by Musah Swallah, A Solo Exhibition at Calabar Gallery

Sanu Da Zuwa means welcome in Hausa, a common language spoken in West Africa. It is a phrase I have become very familiar with throughout my life. In Nima, where I was born and raised, whenever a new visitor enters the community, they are met with a warm welcome. In return, the visitor welcomes their companions to their life and shares treasures with the newly made friends.

Baba Musah Swallah is a professional artist born and raised in the densely populated community of Nima in the heart of Accra, Ghana. His painting, sculpture, and mixed media works render stories that reflect everyday life. In his current series, Musah paints on repurposed wooden panels and uses glass, plastic bottles, pieces of cloth, and other recycled materials. His works speak to youth aspirations, urban environments, and the phenomena of globalization.
