I'm Suleiman Gwadah, aka Pacmartian, a self-taught artist/illustrator who’s a little obsessed with sci-fi, fantasy and horror, and I love to express that through afrofuturistic art.

In my illustrations, I attempt to combine elements of genre entertainment like sci-fi, fantasy and horror with African folklore and pop culture. My art style is heavily influenced by elements of pop art, atom punk, cyberpunk and graphic novels from the 70s and 80s.

I love to use bold colours and ink to create images that remind me of the weird and wonderful worlds created by some of my favorite writers and artists from past and present.
