This deck represents an homage to cubism, which has many expressions throughout the world and art history. The artist worked diligently to capture the vibrant colors and tribal roots of the indigenous societies of the African continent.
Artist Victoria Iva expresses her appreciation and love of these artistic and cultural themes in this re-interpretation of the Rider-Waite Tarot, a celebration of interconnecting artistic concepts which honor contributions from the rich history and complex cultures of Africa.
Victoria is a graphic illustrator who collaborates with many different publishers. She loves art that is sincere and moves the viewer. “I consider the Northern Revival style to be the highest art form; I can even cry in front of the pieces.” She believes art should impact the person intensely and possess a hidden magic that unfolds while being viewed.
Her main criteria for any work is that there is something in the art that resonates with the individual on a deep level. She calls this "Magical Realism," which she describes as an artist’s strength and "glow" coming out in their artwork.
