SANKOFICTION

More then 10 years before black panther entered the mainstream cinema I felt an incredible need for african super heroes. This continent had so much to offer and I was aware that I only know a fraction of its culture, history and stories. But the small portion that I got to know while learning about the Ghanaian stories of Komfo Anokye, Osei Tutu and the role of Yaa Asantewaa's within the 5th Anglo-Ashanti-War inspired me so much that I made up a continued story in my mind that brought these super heros into the future. It could become an Animation, a movie, a game or all of that - It didn't matter to me because I was first of all fascinated of developing the character and Environments of this future. The Sankofiction Concept Drawings and Paintings have not only become my final year project at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne but rather it was the foundation of all that followed and the telling the story is not over yet.
