Artist Depicts Biblical Greats As Real Men And Not Bearded Women

Written by Doug Giles on March 28, 2020

Here’s an artist on a mission to change the world — he believes that hand-wringing effeminate images of world-changing prophets and apostles both dishonors God and discourages his people.

Our own Big Dawg, Doug Giles is making an appearance in a video you can catch on Amazon and Vimeo, entitled, BIBLICAL BADASSES: A Raw Look At Christianity And Art:

BIBLICAL BADASSES: A Raw Look At Christianity And Art from Delano Bryant on Vimeo.

He’s making a case for turning the page on the soft-skinned, bearded ladies so much Religious art has imagined our Spiritual forefathers to be, and start a new chapter, depicting them with calloused hands, weathered faces and a dangerously unconquerable look in their eyes.

You know… the kind of men whose bold words started riots and flipped cities on their heads.

Here’s a link to his art site:

Below are some of my original pieces, heretofore, in the Biblical Badass Series. The prints start around $30 and can be printed on high quality paper, canvas or metal. Enjoy.

Titles and images are both hyperlinked for those who want to check on pricing.
