Horn Blowers is an original oil painting by Patti Blueh. A cultural painting that pays homage to her African ancestry, Horn Blowers features two men dressed in traditional garb, each blowing a ceremonial horn. The beauty and realism of Blueh’s modern artwork is always a compelling tale of her heritage. The horn is visible throughout various African traditions, as a method of communication or for special occasions, eventually making its way to the Caribbean and becoming a symbol of freedom. Horn blowers are respected and hold a high place in society. Blowing the horn also requires a certain level of skill. Blueh’s powerful depiction of the strong Black men blowing the horn illustrates that they have mastered the art. The gorgeous blend of colors gives one a compelling oil painting that brings out the beauty and power of a traditional African symbol.
