Sad Panther is an animated music video by acclaimed post-disciplinary artist Damon Davis. It embodies a visual representation of blackness in deity form, following the story of a God that woke up one day to find there existed a power even greater than him. This video is the visual counterpart to the song “Sad Panther” from Darker Gods, the accompanying full-length album to Davis’ exhibition Darker Gods in the Garden of the Low-Hanging Heavens that premiered at The Luminary in June 2018, and made a debut at Art Basel Miami later that year. Darker Gods is an afro-surrealism multi-media project that introduces a universe where people of color are Gods. Challenging the devaluing nature of western representations of blackness in the media and popular culture, the collection of works is made through a black aesthetic for the black community to see themselves in all of their grace and complexity.
