About JonOnyeLockardArt

On Etsy since 2022

Painter, educator, and mentor Jon Onye Lockard embraced the ideology of Sankofa, that there is wisdom in learning from the past and one’s roots, to ensure a strong future moving forward. However, as a scholar and professor of African American history and culture, Lockard was also firmly aware of the disparities between factual histories and those typically taught. Girding himself with factual knowledge throughout his 50-year career, Lockard curated his catalog of works - his Visions of Destiny.


In Lockard’s interpretations, African American history and culture are vibrantly represented, pushing the social boundaries of what may be considered palatable but defines a sturdy foundation upon which the future of the culture can build itself. Figurative, allegorical paintings are resplendent with African symbology and spirituality. In addition to pleasing the soul, Lockard’s artwork is also thought-provoking and meant to teach an observer to see beyond his own comfortable knowledge base.
