The After Midnight Series by visual artist Steven Lopez has featured musicians such as Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Minnie Riperton, India.Arie, Sade, Jill Scott and more. Lopez works by selecting a favorite song, then he begins the painting process in front of a live audience. Above is a time-lapse video of his process in his studio.

In this episode of the series, he paints to Erykah Badu‘s “Amerykahn Promise” off of New Amerykah Part One: Fourth World War. To celebrate Part Two, Steven Lopez is offering an autographed print poster to the most deserving Badu fan. To prove yourself, send a love letter to contests@giantstep.net explaining why you love Erykah Badu and this painting, describing your personal interpretations, the reasons why you love mixed-media, or maybe just why this rare artwork is rightfully yours.

Contest ends April 25th. The Giclee´ print is 30″ x 40″. Good luck! A message from Erykah:

    Peace and Blessings. This is what I call a “double bubble”. I use the word bubble because they are light, airy and always bring joy to children faces. I am the grand-mother of six wonderful young people and I love all of them. I have a six year old grand-daughter would loves to sing, dance, draw, paint and is studying the violin. I am quite concerned about the people and images she connects herself to. The artistry of both my Beloved Sister Erykah and Brother Steven will no doubt spiral her imagination. I pray they also inspire her to continue to nuture her artistic abilities. Equally important would be clear evidence to her that minorities can reach outside the box artistically and shine their light for the world to see. I thank you for the opportunity to show her this video so that she will see the amazing things that happen when music and art combine, that they indeed become a “double bubble”. I pray that I am blessed to give her this wonderful art.

    This is a “double bubble” I use this phrase because bubbles always make children smile. I have a six year old grand-daughter who loves to sing, dance, draw, paint and study violin. The combination of these two great artist will no doubt spiral her imagination and inspire her to continually nuture her artistic interest and abilities. Of equal importance would be the evidence that minorites can reach outside the box and shine their light for the world to see. I thank you for the opportunity to share this video and your artisitry with her. I Pray that I am Blessed to give this and other wonderful art to her.
