George Kelly-Fowokan, Sculptor
Chronicle World article
The last Black History Month of the century will have special meaning for sculptor George Kelly-Fowokan. His monumental 13 foot high obelisk of masks representing the multi-cultural peoples of south London should be ready by October. And, his designed trophies will honour prominent Black Achievers.
Fowokan came of age in the Brixton neighbourhood of Black London. He developed his amiable character under the watchful eyes of his Jamaican parents and extended family. Indeed, in 1994 the Jamaican High Commission in London hosted an exhibition of his sculptures entitled "Beyond My Grandfathers' Dreams"
