by Daniel T. Parker
African Art: the Diaspora and Beyond, is a handsomely clothbound treasure in stunning red with over 300 beautifully photographed works focusing on African Art and contemporary Art. This book illustrates the powerful interplay that takes place between art, furniture and space and provides knowledge of cultural aesthetics in the adornment of one's home.
It has taken Daniel Texidor Parker over 30 years to acquire the 450 masterpieces in his collection. Using his home as an example, Parker wrote African Art: the Diaspora and Beyond to induce the reader to experience at least an iota of the joy, passion and celebration that he experiences when in the presence of extraordinary works of art.
