My name is Andie Jairam and I am an emerging artist out of Atlanta, Georgia. My work deals with Printmaking, Drawings, Murals, and Sculptural pieces are about creating a world through storytelling where Anansi the Spider's ancestors live in a futuristic world. This parallel dimension begins with West Africa's own indigenous African superhero Kwkeu Anansi. My version contains his secret alter ego Amir Kweku, a brilliant geneticist living in the village of Akuu in the year 2035, who has developed a technique of infusing spider's DNA
and their genetic code with nano-technology to create cybernetic spiders. Amir is accidentally bitten by a group of the cybernetic spiders causing him to gain superpowers. It is up to this new superhero to go out into his village and defeat the power and might of the great and evil spirit Osa, in order to prevent Osa from stealing stories from the history books, thus preserving them for posterity. So come one and come all enter a world full of African magic and mystery with your spirit guide Anansi the Spider and help Kweku Anansi stop Osa for good.
