Reggie Singleton was born and raised in Detroit. He began drawing at a early age. He continued art throughout his teens and eventually majored in Fine Arts at WSU. Singleton has studied figural drawing, as well as painting and design. Ancient African art is used to explore the artists lineal roots. Reggie's current work is evolving into an amalgam of past and present African history.
Reggie’s work, whether abstract or realistic, is emotive and spiritual. It seeks to elevate one’s spirit; to lift the viewer out of the malaise of life. The work speaks of his forty plus years as a Detroiter and Black man living in America. Through his work, Reggie explores his African roots, executing each work as ritual.
Recently, Reggie has began executing Totems. He uses this method of communicating to connect with his ancestors and show others of African descent this rich history of speaking. He believes the ability to execute such work lies within his DNA.
