Bridging the gap between the art world, street art and Islamic motiffs, Khalid Sabree aka KHA-Tees has been rising to prominence since the late 2000s with his graffiti style drawings made with Islamic ideas with Black nationalist and Cartoon influences born out of upbringing in New York City. Combining the appeal of abstract cartoon graphics with the raw energy of artists like Basquiat, Keith Haring and Romare Bearden, Khalid developed a distinct pop-graffiti aesthetic centered on fluid lettering, bold colors against a dense, rhythmic overspread of imagery like that of praying man, Jazz artists, flying Planes, using crowns for the leter "M", and EID MUBARAK signs. In some of his drawings and paintings, Khalid explored themes of exploitation, Racial subjugation, drug abuse, and rising fears of Black independence, which became increasingly apocalyptic after seeing the out pour of protests against the George Floyd Murder. Alongside artists like Club Bum, Malik Roberts, Jisbar and Iboms, Khalid is regarded as a leading figure in the New Artists movement of future.
