Black-oriented cinema (aka “Blaxploitation”) was done in abundance in the 1970s. It started off good, but gradually descended into silliness (“Blacula” anyone?). Each film also had a killer soundtrack, usually done by just one artist. “Foxy Brown”, “Superfly”, “Cotton Comes to Harlem”, “Across 110th Street”, “Black Caesar”, you name it, I’ve seen it.

Argentinian artist Tata Monie took her love for that era and translated it into some stunning NSFW watercolor renditions. I wish she had one for “The Mack”, that’s my all time favorite from that period. Enjoy.
