Visual Art: Cbabi Bayoc = Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance

So … What’s a Cbabi?

Well let me tell you.

It’s a Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance

So guess what? … You can be a “CBABI” too! I don’t mind!

but seriously, i’m a husband, father, and then a painter. I’ve been blessed with a supportive family and i am just getting started in this art thang y’all. Please come along for the ride. I feel it getting real exciting!

Cbabi (pronounced Kuh-bob-bi) Bayoc is an artist who has always known, and lived, his calling: creating art which reflects his love of music and family. This was in fact the reason he changed his name in 1997 from Clifford Miskell to Cbabi Bayoc. He wanted a name that when said always sent him a reminder of his purpose in life.

Cbabi stands for Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance and Bayoc (which he waited for his wife to discover) stands for Blessed African Youth of Creativity. Cbabi wanted to have a last name that included the attributes of the wife he was going to bear children with because the last name, he felt, should reflect both parents and not just the father.
