During the course of three weeks, Zana Sanders and Khaldun Oluwa have been diligently constructing “The Monopolized Project” art installation. As you’ve seen in my previous post, A Glimpse of “The Monopolized Project,” the artist collective began with an empty voluminous venue at Abrams Creative Space. Within a short time span, their ingenious spurred a spectacular rendition of a dilapidated urban community; adjacent to a stunning ebony goddess reigning over a utopia.
As “The Monopolized Project” Art Director and Set Designer, Khaldun ensured that Eternal Blackness radiated throughout the vicinity. Although his preferred medium is oil paint, the art installation forced Khaldun to expand his boundaries and utilize acrylics. Resultingly, the endeavor has cemented a new creative epoch for the remarkable painter. Zana, Executive Producer and Director, compiled some engrossing footage of these glorious moments in the final stages of “The Monopolized Project.” The latest episode of 4:20 DECYPHER was also recorded from the set!

Last Friday, Zana and Khaldun hosted an Open House for “The Monopolized Project.” Attendees were able to converse with the artists and receive their personal reflections about the art installation. It was also a joyous occasion for Zana and Khaldun to celebrate this milestone with their family members and friends. Snapshots from the event are provided below!
