Fan Lee Warren is a contemporary African American artist. She lives, works, and teaches drawing, painting and art history at Laney Community College in Oakland, CA. Born in Birmingham, AL, and raised in Chicago, Warren’s artwork explores various perceptions of black American culture, and its reflected historical construct. Her work depicts information simultaneously from the past and present. The ancient universal spiral provides the transformative symbolism that connects her current and past work with her ancestral memories. Each loop of the spiral brings one back to the same place, in timeless movement and flow.
