Short biography
Leslie Tillett and his wife D.D. produced hundreds of prints, distilled from their travels, studies of indigenous peoples and the workshops they established. Embedded in Bedford Stuyvesant in the mid 1970’s at the request of Jackie Onassis, the Tilletts set up a workshop to engage and train local artists and others from the community in developing and silkscreening textiles based on African motifs. Besides painting and drawing from nature themselves, they used photo transfers from historic sources, ethnographic material and other graphics.
