The following
Aesthetic Principles
 
were not only drawn from the work of the artists in the group but were also from their inheritable art forms as an African people:

 

FREE SYMMETRY
-
The use of syncopated, rhythmic repetition which constantly changes in color, texture, shapes, form, pattern, movement, feature, etc.
 

MIMESIS AT MID-POINT
- Design which marks the spot where the real and the unreal, the objective and the non-objective, the plus and the minus meet. A point exactly between absolute abstractions and absolute naturalism.
 

VISIBILITY 
- Clarity of form and line based on the interesting irregularity one senses in a freely drawn circle or organic object, the feeling for movement, growth, changes and human touch.
 

LUMINOSITY
- "Shine," literal and figurative, as seen in the dress and personal grooming of shoes, hair (process or Afro), laminated furniture, face, knees or skin.                                                                 

COLOR
- Cool-ade color,right colors with sensibility and harmony.
