 Fine Artist 

   OKEEBA JUBALO is an American painter based in Atlanta, Georgia whose creations are centered on illuminating the undefined and sometimes bitter truths of people of African American descent.  He uses sketchy, yet vibrant and soulfully layered paint strokes with his original hand-written poetry. His infiltration of aged photos has become a prominent characteristic of his work.  His strong, in-your-face artistry invokes conversations that are seldom discussed in large social arenas.  

     Okeeba Jubalo has taken it upon himself to create a visual voice for those made invisible in America's social, economic and political infrastructure.  He draws his inspiration from his share cropping forefathers and experience.  His artwork is a reflection of his vision of his perspective on the struggle of today's African American.  

   

     Religious, social and political subject matter drive the message of his artistry.  His artistic technique draws the audience into a visual history lesson that speaks to today's social landscape.  

 

     Okeeba Jubalo will continue to address some of the major concerns, issues and circumstances faced by African Americans from a socioeconomic standpoint.  By addressing the past, he hopes that conversations invoked by his artwork will lead to global positive actions, and educating African American youth about sacrifices made by his and her ancestors.

Community leader, artist and CEO, Okeeba Jubalo, is a visionary pioneer for the advancement of African American art and business in Atlanta. Jubalo has helped push the culture forward and create opportunities for others through his marketing and branding agency, NobleSol Art Group. His agency’s clients list has included The Morehouse College National Alumni Association, The Atlanta Dream to the National Black Arts Festival along with many others. He has curated and been featured in a number of fine art exhibitions as well. 

 

Jubalo has over 20 years of experience in the art industry ranging from music, fine art, branding to graphic design. One of his most recent curated art exhibitions took place in Feb of 2019 with the NBAF (National Black Arts Festival.) 

 

Jubalo founded NobleSol Art Group in 2002 with the intent to not only build his own personal brand, but to direct the branding process of other entrepreneurs. NobleSol Art Group created a voice for entrepreneurs by branding their businesses, which sparked Jubalo to create the national publication, Young Black Entrepreneur Magazine. This publication serves as an educational platform for entrepreneurs. 

One of the more recent components Jubalo created under the wing of NobleSol Art Group is the Wolfpack internship group. Whole heartedly endorsed by 8-time Emmy Award winning journalist, Maynard Eaton, the Wolfpack is designed for college students to develop real world professional skills and build upon career opportunities.
