Remembering Chadwick Boseman Through Art.

By Chris Mullen, September 23, 2020

Isn’t it so weird how a person you don’t know can leave a massive impression on your life? Like many people, I knew nothing of Chadwick Boseman before Captain America: Civil War and The Black Panther, but his onscreen charisma and authenticity connected with me. For me, I think that is what is so incredible about Chadwick Boseman. His presence undeniably uplifted a movie that was already historic and inclusive. He was an excellent actor, and I can’t help but feel the world was robbed of an extraordinary person.

As expected, our print shop receives more artwork consisting of Chadwick Boseman nowadays. I love seeing how artists remember him in their own ways. Apparently, many fans rely on our talented clients for their own grievances and love for Chadwick and the many characters he played on screen. Today, we share some of that art to remember and pay tribute to the Legend, and fellow South Carolinian, Chadwick Boseman.

Many people cannot envision anyone else other than Chadwick Boseman playing the Black Panther. The late actor brought brilliance and presence to the role that may prove difficult to duplicate. This billion-dollar movie was nominated for Best Picture at the 91st Academy Awards. Art by Eugene Java.
