You have to love social media and for the treasures you can find. In a random jaunt through Instagram, thanks to Pia from Chronicles of a Mixed Fat Chick, I found an artist whose work had me intrigued and a bit excited to share. I missed the past few weeks in sharing plus size art, have you checked out those? You can do so here! But today? Our plus size artist spotlight is David ” Moko Jumbie ” James!
It is not often (or in my world) that I find artists who showcase women of color as their subjects and for me; it was exciting to see and share. For David “ Moko Jumbie ” James, his art focuses on the sensuality of the plus size woman. And I am here for it all…
So what I have done is picked out my favorite pieces from his “BBW art collection” and have shared them with you! He has quite the range too! If you are looking for more sensual ones, make sure you check out this site! Just so you know!

About Moko Jumbie:

It was here he developed his penchant for art and the Caribbean culture. Moko Jumbie received his associate degree from Essex County College in Engineering and Mathematics in 1997. It was at this point that he decided to pursue a lucrative career in Graphic Design. David “Moko Jumbie” James graduated from Rutgers University in 2002 with a BA in Art.
