TRYBE-All echoes a triumphant declaration of success, enduring life's storms, disappointments, or just an unfortunate experience.  The encounter requires a warrior to engage in a self-determined resistance until a conflict is won.  The TRYBE is fictional; however, its meaning is understood and celebrated universally: “The members of any individual’s “tribe” are ever present to support one another in  good times or times of challenge and distress."

Tony J Spencer - Art Collage

After claiming victory over the test of the battle, the warrior and trybe's leader, Papa Julu, share in a ceremonial expression of seizing power or recapturing what was always his: victory over challenges.  TRYBE-ALL (tribal) is a play on words with this intentional message to all tribes/families.  Each painting has an individual title to reflect a story line or meaning. It is left with each viewing to find their own meaning in each painting.
