The Street Artist Bringing Civil Rights Icons to Life

Fabian Williams, aka, “Occasional Superstar,” is an artist bringing hope to the streets of Atlanta.

Through his murals, he addresses the perceptions and tensions that arise when thinking about race in America. Mixing politics with humor, his art brings activists and civil rights leaders to heroic heights, with figures like Hosea Williams, Martin Luther King Jr., and Colin Kaepernick portrayed at giant, mystical scales. Painting civil rights icons alongside contemporary activists, Williams hopes his art will reach and inspire our next generation of leaders.
